Gulf Air and Iran Air are discussing the possibility of working together. Iran Air’s chairman & managing director, Dazood Keshazarzian met with James Hogan, Gulf Air’s president & chief executive, in Bahrain last week to explore areas of co-operation and synergies that will benefit both airlines.

Discussions between the two centered on areas of co-operation, including the network, cargo operations, sharing infrastructure, and expansion of codesharing.

“At this challenging time for the airline industry, it is important to explore new ways to work together to remove obstacles and create economies of scale,” says James Hogan. “Partnerships and co-operation hold the potential to make our industry more efficient in meeting the requirements of the market and serving our customers better.”

“Collaboration also holds the key to developing the tremendous potential of the entire region. We share the important task of promoting and encouraging economic development within this region,” he adds.

The meeting did not lead to any concrete announcements, but the two sides agreed to further talks later in the year.
