Iran’s Qeshm Airlines has acquired the former Starbow Avro RJ100 M-NONA (msn E3332 ex 9G-SBE) as EP-FQZ. She had been stored at Malta Luqa since late November 2017, after Starbow suspended services. Painted all white and wearing her Iranian registration, she departed Malta for Tehran on 16 March. Qeshm’s fleet already includes four RJ100s and an RJ85, but the latter is not currently operational.
