EghtesadOnline: Kish Airline has overhauled its grounded Airbus A321 back to service after a year and a half.
The airline resumed the use of this aircraft on the Tehran-Kish route on Aug. 9.
The repair process of the commercial passenger twin-engine jet airliner, which accommodates 120 passengers, took less than three months, IRNA reported.
Kish Airline operates from Iran’s southern tourist hub and free trade zone of Kish Island. It also operates international and charter services. The airline was established in 1989, according to Financial Tribune.
In May, the country's flag carrier, Iran Air, unveiled its overhauled 25-year-old Fokker 100. The aircraft had been grounded for over two years for lack of landing gear and engine.
