Iran Air takes delivery of its first four ATR 72-600s

Iran Air, Iran’s national flag carrier, has on Tuesday May 16th, 2017 taken delivery of its first four ATR 72-600s.


ATR and Iran Air signed earlier this year a firm contract for 20 ATR 72-600s and options for a further 20. Deliveries of the 20 firm aircraft will extend until the end of 2018.

Following the relief on international sanctions on Iran, there is a major need to modernise and develop air transportation to boost local economies throughout the country and improve connectivity between the regions. Iran relies on a strong domestic infrastructure, that numbers 60 airports that the ATRs are fully capable of serving. The ATR 72-600 is ideal for operations in many types of challenging environments, including small airfields, unpaved runways and mountainous regions. The ATR 72-600 will form the core of the regional aircraft of the Iran Air fleet and will substantially contribute to the expansion and development of the services provided by the national airline across the country.

Christian Scherer, Chief Executive Officer of ATR, declared: "There are still historical moments in aviation, and this is one of them. We are proud and gratified that our ATR aircraft are providing the solution to Iran's significant needs in regional connectivity. As Iran's travelling public gains access to increased supply of air transportation, it will benefit from the highest standards of comfort, efficiency and reliability with the ATR´s we are delivering today and over the coming months. We salute Iran Air for their choice in our favour and the tremendous role they play in their country."

Farhad Parvaresh, Chief Executive Officer of Iran Air, commented: “Our new fleet of ATR 72-600s showcases our will to provide newest generation aircraft to our customers, therefore ensuring comfort, reliability and competitiveness. Strengthening the links between all our communities will encourage new business opportunities for everyone.”

Iran is also expected to be the Middle East’s next big tourism destination.

USAFIRI NA UCHUKUZI KWA NJIA YA ANGA

Udhibiti wa Usalama wa Usafiri wa Anga

154.Mheshimiwa Spika, Serikali imeendelea kuzingatia vigezo na kanuni za usalama wa usafiri wa anga kama inavyoshauriwa na Shirika la Usafiri wa Anga Duniani (The International Civil Aviation Organisation-ICAO). Kwa lengo la kuimarisha na kuboresha huduma za usafiri wa anga nchini. Wizara kupitia Mamlaka ya Usafiri wa Anga (TCAA) imeendelea kusajili ndege kulingana na masharti ya usajili ambapo katika kipindi cha Julai 2016 hadi Machi, 2017, ndege 14 zilisajiliwa kwa mara ya kwanza hapa nchini na ndege 79 zilikaguliwa na kupewa vyeti vya ubora wa kuendelea kufanya kazi. Lengo ni kuhakikisha utekelezaji wa sheria na kanuni za Usalama wa Usafiri wa Anga zinafuatwa.

155.Mheshimiwa Spika, Wizara kupitia TCAA imeendelea kudhibiti ajali za vyombo vya usafiri wa anga. Katika mwaka 2016/2017, hakuna ajali ya usafiri wa anga iliyotokea isipokuwa yalikuwepo matukio saba (7) ya vyombo vya usafiri wa anga. Aidha, Mamlaka imeendelea kuimarisha usalama katika viwanja vyote vya ndege ili kuhakikisha kwamba viwanja hivyo havitumiki katika matukio ya uhalifu yakiwemo ya kupitisha madawa ya kulevya na nyara za Umma. Pia, Mamlaka imeendelea kuhakikisha kwamba maafisa wa usalama katika viwanja vya ndege wanapatiwa mafunzo stahiki na kupewa leseni. Katika kipindi cha Julai, 2016 hadi Machi, 2017, jumla ya maafisa usalama 35 walipatiwa mafunzo. Kati yao, maafisa 25 walihitimu na kupewa leseni.

156.Mheshimiwa Spika, katika mwaka 2016/2017, Mamlaka ya Usafiri wa Anga iliendelea kufanya kaguzi za viwanja vyote vya ndege nchini ili kuhakikisha kuwa viwanja hivi vinakidhi vigezo, masharti na kanuni zilizowekwa na Mamlaka. Viwanja vya ndege vilivyokaguliwa na kupewa vyeti vya ubora baada ya kukidhi vigezo vya kimataifa kwa ajili ya kupokea ndege kubwa ni pamoja na Julius Nyerere, Amani Abedi Karume na Kilimanjaro. Aidha, uimarishaji na uboreshaji wa viwanja vya ndege vya Pemba, Geita, Matemanga na Jengo la Tatu la Abiria katika kiwanja cha Julius Nyerere uliendelea kudhibitiwa ili kukidhi viwango vya usalama.

157.Mheshimiwa Spika, Ili kudhibiti na kuimarisha usalama wa usafiri wa anga nchini, TCAA inatarajia kununua rada 4 za kuongozea ndege za kiraia. Majadiliano ya mkataba baina ya TCAA na Mkandarasi (M/s Thares Air Systems) kutoka Ufaransa yanakamilishwa na mkataba unatarajiwa kusainiwa wakati wowote. Rada hizi ambazo zitakamilika usimikaji wake Aprili, 2018 zitafungwa katika viwanja vya ndege vya JNIA, Mwanza, Kilimanjaro na Songwe kwa gharama ya Shilingi bilioni 61.3.

158.Mheshimiwa Spika, utendaji wa sekta ya usafiri wa anga nchini umeendelea kukua. Katika mwaka 2016/2017, idadi ya abiria wanaotumia usafiri wa anga imefikia abiria 5,057,180 ikilinganishwa na abiria 4,861,277 waliosafiri mwaka 2015/2016. Hili ni ongezeko la asilimia 4. Kwa abiria wanaosafiri kwenda na kutoka nje ya nchi, katika mwaka 2016/2017, jumla ya abiria 2,238,653 wanatarajiwa kusafiri ikilinganishwa na abiria 2,146,360 waliosafiri katika mwaka 2015/2016. Sababu za ongezeko hili ni pamoja na kusainiwa kwa mikataba ya usafiri wa anga kati ya Tanzania na nchi zingine (Bilateral Air Services Agreements - BASA); uimarishaji wa miundombinu na huduma za viwanja vya ndege; uboreshaji wa uwanja wa ndege wa Julius Nyerere (JNIA); ukuaji wa uchumi na shughuli za utalii nchini. Aidha, idadi ya abiria waliosafiri ndani ya nchi imeongezeka kutoka abiria 2,910,820 mwaka 2015/2016 hadi abiria 3,056,361 katika mwaka 2016/2017. Hii ni sawa na ongezeko la asilimia 5. Sababu ya ongezeko la abiria wa ndani ni pamoja Serikali kutekeleza azma yake ya kuimarisha na kuendeleza Kampuni ya Ndege Tanzania, kukua kwa shughuli za kiuchumi, kuongezeka kwa utalii nchini na kuanzishwa kwa safari za ndege katika maeneo mapya ya Dodoma, Bukoba na Songea.

159.Mheshimiwa Spika, utoaji wa huduma za kusafirisha mizigo katika viwanja mbalimbali vya ndege nchini umeendelea kukua. Hadi Aprili, 2017, mizigo ya kwenda na kutoka nchini ilifikia tani 32,773.6 kutoka tani 31,425.2 zilizosafirishwa katika kipindi kama hicho mwaka 2015/2016. Hii ni sawa na ongezeko la asilimia 4.3. Ongezeko hili lilichangiwa na kukua kwa shughuli za kibiashara na kiuchumi ndani na nje ya nchi na jitihada za kuboresha miundombinu ya huduma za usafirishaji wa mizigo kupitia usafiri wa anga.

160.Mheshimiwa Spika, Katika kipindi cha Julai, 2016 hadi Machi, 2017, jumla ya kampuni 59 zilipewa leseni kwa ajili ya kutoa huduma mbalimbali katika viwanja vya ndege. Kati ya hizo, Kampuni 25 zilipewa leseni ya kutoa huduma mbalimbali kwa kampuni nyingine za ndege (Third Party Ground Handling Services Providers); Kampuni 14 kutoa huduma kwenye ndege zake zenyewe (self handling); Kampuni 8 kutoa huduma za vyakula kwa kampuni za ndege na Kampuni 12 kutoa huduma ya ugavi wa mafuta ya ndege. Aidha, hadi Machi, 2017, jumla ya kampuni za usafiri wa ndege 61 zilikuwa zinatoa huduma za usafiri wa anga wa ratiba (scheduled) na usiokuwa wa ratiba (non-scheduled air services). Hii ni sawa na ongezeko la asilimia 5 ikilinganishwa na kipindi kama hicho katika mwaka 2015/2016.

161.Mheshimiwa Spika, Tanzania imeendelea kuingia makubaliano ya huduma za usafiri wa anga na nchi mbalimbali (BASA) kwa lengo la kukidhi mahitaji ya soko na kurahisisha usafiri katika sekta hii muhimu. Katika kipindi cha Julai, 2016 hadi Aprili, 2017, jumla ya makubaliano mapya kumi (10) yaliingiwa baina ya Tanzania na nchi za Israel, Ureno, Guyana, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Morocco, Falme za nchi za Kiarabu, Denmark na Uganda. Aidha, mikataba ya nchi nne (4) za Malawi, Kenya, Oman na Uturuki ilipitiwa upya. Makubaliano haya yanafanya hadi Aprili, 2017, Tanzania kuwa imeingia mikataba ya BASA na jumla ya nchi 68 ikilinganishwa na nchi 60 zilizokuwa zimesaini makubaliano hayo mwaka 2015/2016. Hadi Aprili, 2017, Mashirika ya ndege ya kimataifa ya ndani na nje ya nchi 29 yalikuwa yanatoa huduma za usafiri wa anga kwa utaratibu wa BASA. Aidha, safari za ndege kati ya nchi hizo na Tanzania zilikuwa 193 kwa juma.

162.Mheshimiwa Spika, Wizara imeendelea kuhakikisha kuwa gharama za mawasiliano ya ndege kati ya kituo na kituo zinapungua na zinakuwa za uhakika. Moja ya uboreshaji huo ni kubadilisha mfumo wa mawasiliano ya anga kutoka mfumo unaotumika sasa wa analojia kwenda mfumo wa digitali. Kazi ya kuboresha mawasiliano kati ya waongoza ndege na marubani wakiwa angani (VHF area cover relay station) huko Lokisale, Arusha na Changarawe, Iringa zimekamilika. Aidha, zabuni ya kuboresha mfumo wa mawasiliano kwenda mfumo wa digitali wa ufuatiliaji wa safari za ndege katika kituo cha Pemba ilitangazwa Februari, 2017.
Kuhusu kufanya ukarabati wa mnara wa kuongozea ndege katika kituo cha Pemba, zabuni ya kumpata mkandarasi wa kufanya ukarabati wa mnara huo zilifunguliwa tarehe 2 Februari, 2017. Kazi za ukarabati zinaendelea na zinatarajiwa kukamilika Juni, 2017.

163. Mheshimiwa Spika, kuhusu mfuko wa mafunzo kwa marubani na wahandisi wa ndege, Mamlaka ya TCAA inaendelea na juhudi za kutafuta fedha ili kuweza kufadhili wanafunzi wengi zaidi kwenye mafunzo ya urubani na wahandisi wa ndege. Hata hivyo, Mamlaka inaendelea kushirikiana na vyuo vingine hapa nchini kikiwemo Chuo cha Usafirishaji (NIT) ili kuhakikisha kwamba mafunzo hayo yanatolewa hapa nchini.

Huduma za Viwanja vya Ndege
