Turkish Airlines' (THY) aircraft maintenance company, Turkish Technic, is meeting with Iranians to establish an aircraft maintenance center. It was also noted that German carrier Lufthansa has also started negotiations to enter into the Iranian market, which has an old aircraft fleet and therefore potential.

Iran, which came to an agreement on limiting nuclear activities in return for the cancellation of economic sanctions with Western countries, is now striving for a technological leap. Iran is prioritizing air and freight transportation and is drawing international brands, including Turkish Technic, which is currently working towards entering the Iranian airline market, which only has around 10 firms.

Speaking at the Dubai Airshow, one of the four top organizations in the global aviation industry, Turkish Technic Marketing Manager Özcan Baştekin said that they are planning on transferring their expertise and experience in aircraft maintenance and repair to Iran and that THY already has a connection to Mahan Air, which is one of the biggest airlines in the country, in terms of transportation. Lufthansa is also waiting to enter into Iran, which has suffered a number of airplane accidents. The German company is currently negotiating with Iranian companies.
