Both of the Avro RJ85s previously operated by Mongolia’s Eznis Airways are now in Iran, operating for Mahan Air. JU-9915 (msn E2261) had arrived in Kyiv on 29 April, and was registered UR-CLV. Her sistership JU-9909 (msn E2257) had followed her to Kyiv on 7 May, and was registered UR-CLU. Both were ferried to Tehran on 29 May, with UM Air callsigns. Mahan Air has amassed a sizeable fleet of BAe 146s and RJ100s from a variety of sources; these are its first Avro RJ85s.
