Itinerary of the tour:

For more than 25 years, US-sanctions have been preventing the impressingly large airfleet of Iran from getting renewed. Thanks to intensive caretaking of both governmental and private Iranian airlines, an extraordinary interesting fleet of jet-oldtimers could be kept airworthy despite – or even because of – US-sanctioning. Thus, Iran definitely is one of the most interesting countries in the world for the aviation enthusiast.

Due to this reason, we are offering the aviation enthusiast a dedicated tour into this beautiful country which is organized by in cooperation with Shiraz-based licensed and experienced tour operator Pars Tourist Agency (P.T.A.).

Highlights of this trip are domestic flights on rare aircraft, including one of the last Boeing B707s remaining in use for regular pax operations.

For a maximum of 30 participants, this trip could be the last chance ever to experience this aircraft type before a phase-out will happen sooner or later in the near future.

Arrival at Teheran

Flight to Tehran. Depending on your departure airport, your arrival is expected to be in the late evening or in the (early) morning of Friday, SEP 1.

It depends on the airline you are travelling with if you will arrive in Tehran at the new airport of the Iranian capital, Imam Khomeini International Airport (IKA) or at the older city-airport Mehrabad International (THR) – but no matter where you are obliged to land – we pick you up and bring you to the calmness of a Tehran hotel to get some hours of resting!

Boeing 707, SAHA AIR

After a feast of a typical Iranian breakfast (usually consisting of Nan-bread, tomatoes, cucumbers, goat cheese and fried eggs), the first excursion of this trip takes you to the Iranian Aviation Museum, situated near Karaj in the desert south of Tehran. Both the fascinating history of Iran’s flag carrier Iran Air as well as some military types can be seen here.

Right afterwards we return to the capital and drive to Mehrabad International Airport which is mainly used for domestic flights.

At around 2 pm, the first highlight of our tour is expected to be ready for take-off!

Saha Air’s Boeing B707 will take us on a 1’20’’ flight to Mashhad MHD in eastern Iran – a fascinating landscape en route as well as spectacular views of the Alborz mountains and the Kavir desert are waiting for you!

After arrival we will be transfered to downtown Mashhad, where we check-in at a hotel close to the holy shrine of Imam Reza, with its golden dome one of the main places holy to Shiite Muslims and an impressive sight for foreign visitors.

The afternoon of today is dedicated to the cultural aspects of this trip by making a guided walk through the inner city area of Mashhad.

Tupolev 154, IRAN AIR TOURS

After breakfast we drive back to Mashhad Airport from where we take another interesting flight across Iran: from Mashhad MHD to Shiraz SYZ in the south of Iran. We fly all the way over the central Zagros mountains and make our final approach to SYZ right over one of Irans major salt lakes. A Tupolev 154 of IRAN AIR TOURS, a subsidiary of flag carrier Iran Air, is planned to be used for this 1’15’’ domestic flight.

Some of the Tupolevs flying here used to be in operation for the governmental division of Eastern German Interflug (which can be recognised by German inscriptions and signs in the cabin), although we cannot guarantee that our aircraft will be one of them. After landing at SYZ we will be taken to our hotel in the city of Shiraz.

In the afternoon you will visit one of the Orient’s most important sights, the cradle of the old Persian empire, Persepolis, a huge regents palace built aside the Zagros mountains, older than the Pyramides! The archaeological site is situated less than one hour from the city of Shiraz.

Sunday 03.09.2006

Fokker 50, KISH AIR

This morning, we continue our trip and take our own domestic charter flight on a Fokker 50 of KISH AIR. The flight will take us from Shiraz SYZ to the Persian Gulf Island of Kish.

Amazingly, Kish Island is the most important holiday resort within Iran, frequented by domestic travellers - many rules being “hard and fast” on the mainland seem to be handled fairly relaxed by Iranian authorities here. In Iran, people even call Kish Island the “land of unlimited possibilities”!

At Kish Airport we expect to be allowed to photograph directly on the airfield and apron, both parked and running airplanes (in coordination with the Iranian authorities), which means nearly unlimited planespotting!

Monday 04.09.2006

Boeing 707, SAHA AIR

Before we start our flight back to Tehran, we use the chance to see and enjoy the sights of this most important Iranian islands of the Persian Gulf. You will even have the chance for a relaxed walk along the beaches and sandy shores along the Gulf’s waters!

After this we will – early enough to have time for taking photos – get to Kish Airport again where our SAHA Air flight back to Tehran’s Mehrabad Airport will most likely be operated in a phantastic B707 again, which is chartered by an Iranian tour operator to take their customers back from their Kish holidays!

The flight is planned to take off from Kish in the evening.

Με μία λέξη: ΠΕΙΡΑΣΜΟΣ!

Με περισσότερες: Μία χώρα που πρέπει να επισκεφθούμε πριν γίνει και αυτή "parking lot".......
Με την πρώτη ματιά η ιδέα είναι super αλλά το πρόγραμμα χωλαίνει. Σχετικά καλή τιμή, υπέροχα αεροπλάνα, ενδιαφέρουσα χώρα αλλά....
Δύο παρατηρήσεις.

Η βασικότερη είναι ότι το πρόγραμμα ΔΕΝ περιλαμβάνει την ωραιότερη πόλη του IRAN, το ISFAHAN. Θεωρώ μέγιστη παράλειψη να επισκευτεί κάποιος μιά χώρα δύσκολη σαν το IRAN και να μην δεί το βαρύ πυροβολικό της.Σαν να πας στην Αθήνα και να μην δεις την Ακρόπολη!! Δεν πηγαίνεις κάθε χρόνο στο IRAN, γιαυτό πιστεύω ότι είναι αδιανόητο το ταξίδι εκεί χωρίς την επίσκεψη αυτής της πανέμορφης και ιστορικής πόλης.

Η δεύτερη παρατήρηση έχει να κάνει με τα αεροπλάνα. Εκτος του 707 και το FOKKER και το TU-154 πετάνε κανονικά στις εσωτερικές πτήσεις του IRAN κι έτσι αν το οργανώσεις καλά, μπορεί εύκολα να τα πετύχεις. Αξίζει να σημειώσουμε εδώ, ότι τα εσωτερικά δρομολόγια στο IRAN είναι από τα φτηνότερα στον κόσμο, περίπου 20 με 25euro το one way σχεδόν σε όλες τις διαδρομές. Ετσι θεωρώ πως μπορείς να φτιάξεις την εκδρομή σου μόνος, διαλέγοντας τα μέρη που θέλεις, όπως καλύτερα νομίζεις.

Το συμπέρασμα λοιπόν γιά μένα είναι, ότι σαφώς πρόκειται για μια εκπληκτική χώρα, που αξίζει ένα ταξίδι, αλλά η μορφή της εκδρομής αν εξαιρέσουμε την πτήση με τo 707, μάλλον δεν με εκφράζει θεωρώντας ότι μόνος μου μπορώ να φτιάξω ένα καλύτερο ταξιδιωτικό πρόγραμμα που ασφαλώς και θα περιλαμβάνει το ISFAHAN.
Με τα μεταφορικά τι θα κάνουμε :?:

Έτσι από περιέργεια η THY το δίνει 654 alle-retour από Αθήνα

IR από LON/PAR/ROM/CPH/AMS πανάκριβη :!:

Αλλά ούτως ή άλλως θα πάμε μόνοι μας ε :?: :cool:

COMPUTERIZE σε χρήζω επικεφαλή του εγχειρήματος ;)

Συμφωνώ με Computerise για Ισφαχάν. Ήταν το μοναδικό μου (-). :!:

... Αλλά και γω με την σειρά μου Mr Computerise σε χρίζω αρχηγό. Είσαι? ;)

Άντε να αλώσουμε την Περσία... :D :cool:

Η Ιran Air πετάει και από Ρώμη / Μιλάνο / Γερμανία.
Είπαμε και με την mahan από DUS.

Να μην μπω δηλαδή στην σκέψη για group ticket :?: E :?: E :?: E :?: Emirates... :D E :?: E :?:

Ναι ναι... Group sponsored by... Κάτι μου θυμίζει αυτό...

Και ένα contact στην IranAir να μας φέρει το SP δε θα έβλαπτε... Έτσι για το ξεκάρφωμα...
η Gulf Air έχει προσφορα, ATH-BAH-ATH για 129 BHD (283EUR Roundtrip)

(by the way. η πτήση γίνετε πια me 767, μάλλον ένα dορo για τον αποστολή)

αλλα διστισχος μου βγασι "no seats available" στο BAH-IKA για αυτήν την ιμερομενια

ίσος υπάρχει και εκεί μια προσφορα ?


εάν έχετε ενδιαφέρον, να πετάξετε με την SAHA,

μην ξεχάσετε ότι then είναι τόσο απλά να κλείσετε εσιτιρα:

1) η πτήσης είναι πάντα γεμάτες

2) είναι μια εταιρία που πετάει βασικά για τον στρατό, και αυτό εννοεί, "military personal before civilians"

3) 3) πρέπει να εξεγισετε τον λόγο γιατί θέλετε να ταξιδέψετε με την SAHA! και then απλός φτάνει η κλασσική απαντήσει "Vacation"
Βρήκα τιμή ΤΗΥ από ΙST στα 360€ :!:
Μέχρι την Πόλη θα πάμε με τον υπέροχο OSE... :!: :D ;)
