Conviasa Airline Begins A340 Routes To Iran

Prepare yourself for a flight that will last for 13 hours as you travel from Venezuela to Iran. Conviasa, the national airline of Venezuela, plans to use its flagship Airbus A340-300 aircraft to operate a new long-haul route beginning at Caracas’ Simon Bolvar International Airport (CCS) and terminating at Tehran’s Imam Khomeini International Airport (IKA) in the near future. Let’s look at this more, shall we?

The most recent travel path

The routes that Conviasa conducts often seem to be somewhat bizarre. In the past, it has flown from Venezuela to a number of other cities, including Moscow, Doha, Damascus, and Belgrade. It is the only foreign airline company that is presently operating flights to Mexico City’s brand new Felipe Ngeles International Airport.

Now, the airline is looking at the possibility of operating commercial routes that do not make stops along the way between Caracas and Tehran. On social media, Conviasa made the announcement that beginning on June 18, the national airline would begin flying once every 15 days along this route.

According to information provided by One Mile At A Time, Conviasa had previously operated flights to Tehran. Despite this, the initial leg of this service flew straight to the Vnukovo International Airport in Moscow (VKO). The Venezuelan airline will now provide direct flights to the city that serves as the capital of Iran.

According to the airline,

Tehran will be the next stop for Conviasa! This route is going to be serviced once every two weeks. Tickets may be purchased directly from our website at this time.

Regarding the airplane trip

The duration of the journey from Caracas to Tehran is going to be 13 hours and 30 minutes, as stated on the website of the airline. There is a distance of 7,315 miles that separates the two locations (11,772 kilometers).

On board the airline’s Airbus A340-300, which has a capacity of up to 255 people, fares vary from $1,033 to $1,347 in the United States of America. There are eight seats in the first class, 28 seats in the business class, and 219 seats in the economy class.

There will be a flight that departs from Caracas every other Saturday, and there will be a one that returns to Venezuela every other Tuesday.

Conviasa maintains a varied fleet in order to successfully run these routes. ch-aviation reports that Conviasa now operates a fleet of 22 aircraft, which includes three long-haul Airbus A340s (submodels -200, -300, and -600). In addition, the airline operates one Lineage 1000, 15 Embraer ERJ-190, and one Boeing 737-200 on behalf of the Venezuelan government.

YV3507 is the tail number of the Airbus A340-300 that belongs to Conviasa. It made its first flight in October 1997, and delivery occurred the following month. During the course of its 25-year history, this aircraft has been used by Air China (between the years 1997 and 1999), Cathay Pacific (between the years 1999 and 2001), Air China once more for a couple of months in 2001, China Southwest Airlines (between the years 2001 and 2002), and Air China for the third time between the years 2002 and 2013. 

After that, it was parked for some time until it was leased by Avior Airlines, which is another airline based in Venezuela, between the years 2016 and 2019. In 2020, Conviasa was finally able to get a lease on the jet. The airplane is the property of Aircraft Engine Lease Finance (AELF).
