About Taban Airlines:

Airline fleet expansion has been long debated in Iran. Certainly, such a plan can be motivated by meeting passenger's demands for using this section of the transportation industry. Inevitably, the technical and professional zeal of our flight industry experts has been an opportunity to improve this concept and their sense of responsibility. Although private companies, as business enterprises have played an important role in the formation of their plan, it is the passion of flying and also the compliance of serving these needs, and meeting the demands of supporters of air transportation, mentioned above, that has guided the positive moves in this direction.

Therefore, a group of reliable and committed people came together and founded a pure and dedicated company, initially calling it Taban and then adding the word "Airlines" to it for the sake of recognizing flying. Yet, the love of flying and serving people were joined together and Taban Airlines was born, and found itself in a particular place on the list of active airlines.

Its detailed history said that due to a revered respect for its founding board, the top responsibility of this company was entrusted to an experienced person and a capable manager, so that the vision of growth and promotion of a qualitative and quantitative level of the company was recognized by his character. The company's first aircraft (which was a BAE 146-300) entered the country's sky with permission from the Civil Aviation Organization and landed in Mashhad HashemiNejad Airport in Mehr 1385 (October 2006). The next aircraft were added to the country's fleet in November of the same year under the company slogan: "The sky is ours." The Taban Airlines flights were started in the presence of the state officials, including the Governor and General Manager of the HashemiNejad Mashhad Airport.

Five-year achievements:

Since the establishment of Taban Air and the beginning of the flights, all the activities of the company's staff were successful in providing domestic and international flights stipulating customers’ satisfaction. Therefore, to achieve promotion and complete customer’s satisfaction by providing satisfactory services, meeting the passengers’ expectations and also expansion and improvement of the fleet, the number of flights from Mashahd to different parts was increased.

Safety and Security of flights:

Safety and security of flights is the most important principal in air transportation. Therefore, the explicit regulations of (ICAO) as a reference in the legislation of the international rules and regulations of air transportation, plus (IATA) as a reference of the airlines’ assembly, are based on it. The activities of the company’s executive managers, including the Operations department as the key factors of safety assurance, as well as the flight crew support, has led to the performance of safe and secure flights. Yet, in difficult conditions during peak travel periods, the company has been recognized as one of the best on-time performance airlines by the Civil Aviation Organization.

Pilots, co-pilots and flight engineers have all obligated themselves to provide flight status reports; and cabin crew on the international flights, as cultural ambassadors of the Iranian society, act in an accountable, supportive and reliable way to meet the passengers' demands; yet efforts are still followed to achieve higher levels of efficiency in this regard.
