Taban Air adds Avro RJ85


Iran’s Taban Air has put into service a former Dart Airlines Avro RJ85. Dart had taken over RJ85 UR-CKH (msn E2289) from Aviatrans K in December 2013. In November 2014, however, she had been noted stored at Craiova, Romania. She was ferried directly from Craiova to Tehran on 23 December. She was seen at Tehran on 19 March as EP-TBG, wearing Taban’s fuselage colors but retaining her blue Brussels Airlines tail. Taban Air had already operated BAe 146s in the past, leasing several examples of the type from Bulgaria’s Hemus Air between 2006 and 2012.
