The European Union today banned most of Iran Air’s jets from European airports. The EU said a just-completed safety audit of Iran Air assets puts the airliner’s Boeing 727’s, 747’s and Airbus 320s on its blacklist. Iran air’s Boeing jets were purchased in 1970s. The airline had planned to replace older planes with Russian-built TU-204 jets starting next year. Iran Air said today that it would fly its Airbus jets on European flights. Those jets meet EU safety guidelines.
