The Iranian authorities are going to introduce a ban on utilizing the Russian aircraft Tupolev starting February, 2011. This decision can be made in connection with the increasing number of incidents involving these aircraft on the territory of the republic. In addition, Iran will no longer employ foreign pilots as the country has sufficient number of its own professionals.
Iran cannot purchase American Boeing aircraft due to the economic sanctions imposed by the U.S. Accordingly, Iran cannot buy and use parts manufactured in the U.S. that a number of other countries use. Russian-made Tu-154 were the solution of the issue. According to the Iranian government, U.S. and European sanctions have played their role in accidents and fatalities, since Tehran is forced to buy outdated planes and spare parts in Russia.
