Aeroflot Sends Plane To Iran For Maintenance

Aeroflot launches flights from Saint Petersburg to Istanbul and Antalya

The largest airline in Russia, Aeroflot, was compelled to send one of its Airbus A330-300s to Iran for maintenance due to Western sanctions that forbid not only travel to and from Russia but also the maintenance of Russian airlines’ aircraft.

The maintenance work will be carried out by Iranian airline Mahan Air, marking the first time a Russian airline has transported one of its aircraft to Iran for repair. Tehran apparently received the A330-300 on April 5.

According to reports, Aeroflot stated that it had sent one of its aircraft to Iran for maintenance, stating that Mahan Air had “the necessary equipment and facilities, certificates, and vast experience” for the work and that it anticipated the maintenance would be carried out “to a high level of quality.”

Aeroflot has previously utilized the services of other suppliers, such as HAECO of Hong Kong. However, in response to Russian aggression in Ukraine, the EU and the US have outlawed the maintenance of planes used by Russian airlines as well as the sale of spare parts.

The carrier and this company have agreed to a new long-term contract for the maintenance and overhaul of aircraft components. This contract was signed in the summer of 2021. This agreement, however, cannot be put into practice at the moment because of the international sanctions placed on Russia in reaction to the special operation in Ukraine.

Korean Air Rolls Out Next-Generation Business Class: ‘Prestige Suites 2.0’

Korean Air Rolls Out Next-Generation Business Class: ‘Prestige Suites 2.0’

Korean Air has introduced its latest business class offering, the Prestige Suites 2.0, set to make its debut aboard the airline’s new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner fleet.

This new product marks a significant upgrade from the previous Collins Apex forward-facing staggered seats, known as Prestige Suites. The Prestige Suites 2.0 is designed in a staggered 1-2-1 configuration, ensuring each passenger direct aisle access and ample privacy.

The seats offer 46 inches of pitch, 21 inches of width, and can be transformed into a flat bed measuring between 78.2 and 79.2 inches. A standout feature of these seats is the inclusion of privacy doors that stand 52 inches high, offering a more secluded experience even when positioned closer to the aisle.

Tech-savvy travelers will appreciate the suite’s cutting-edge features, which include a 23.8-inch ultra-high-definition entertainment monitor, 60W USB-C charging, AC power outlets, and wireless charging capabilities.

Moreover, Korean Air’s Boeing 787-10s will be the first in the fleet to offer Wi-Fi, enhancing connectivity for passengers. The new business class seats come with a range of amenities aimed at maximizing comfort and convenience. These include a storage cubby, a handheld remote, USB-C charging ports, and universal outlets.

The wireless charging pad is a notable highlight, reflecting the suite’s advanced technological integration. The layout of the Prestige Suites 2.0 comprises 10 rows of seats in a 1-2-1 arrangement, specifically rows 7-16 in the business class cabin. The cabin is flanked by lavatories and galleys at both the front and the rear, ensuring easy access for all passengers.

A striking departure from Korean Air’s traditional design, the new seats feature a bold brown color palette. This is a significant change from the airline’s iconic Morning Calm blue and bright white interiors.

The new design incorporates semi-matte deep brown side consoles with metallic tops, brushed coppery-almond cabinet doors, and textured tan interior shrouds, giving the cabin a modern and sophisticated look.
