For the first time, a female board member of Iran Air – the Iranian flag carrier – has been appointed as the airline’s chief executive officer.
Farzaneh Sharafbafi will replace the current CEO Farhad Parvaresh.
Sharafbafi, the current director general of Iran Air’s research department, will be the first-ever woman to head the national flag carrier, Fars reported.
She is also the first Iranian woman with a PhD in aerospace. She has already implemented several aviation projects and has taught various aerospace courses.
After leaving the airline, the former CEO Parvaresh is going to represent the Islamic Republic at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in Montreal, Canada.
