Gatewick LLC is Mahan Air’s freight and cargo GSA in Dubai, and is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 for having acted on or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, Mahan Air;

Mahan Air was designated in October 2011 pursuant to E.O. 13224 for providing financial, material, or technological support for or to the IRGC-QF. Mahan Air has transported IRGC-QF operatives, weapons, equipment, and funds abroad in support of the IRGC-QF’s regional operations, and has also moved weapons and personnel for Hizballah. Since the onset of the Syrian civil war, Mahan Air has routinely flown fighters and materiel to Syria to prop up the Assad regime, which has contributed to mass atrocities and displacement of civilians;

OFAC is taking action against three Mahan Air GSAs in markets across the Middle East and Asia, entities that prop up Mahan Air’s commercial operations. GSAs are third parties that provide services to an airline under the airline’s brand. These services range from sales, financial, administrative, and marketing services to freight reception and handling;

According to federalregister – February 2009:
Gatewick is a freight and cargo services company in the UAE and at all times pertinent hereto the sole booking agent for air freight forwarding and cargo services for Mahan Airways, an Iranian airline. Gatewick entered into an agreement with Seyed Mousavi Trading, an Iranian trading company, in connection with the export of the items to Iran. Gatewick agreed to receive the goods ordered by Seyed Mousavi Trading from the United States using Mahan Airways’ import code and to then ship the goods from the UAE to their destination in Iran. In furtherance of the conspiracy, Seyed Mousavi Trading, which identified itself to the U.S. reseller as a UAE company, ordered the 2,300 computer motherboards from the reseller for shipment to the UAE. The motherboards were actually destined for Seyed Mousavi Trading’s customer in Iran. Pursuant to Seyed Mousavi Trading’s instructions, the U.S. reseller shipped the motherboards, from the United States to Gatewick’s location in the UAE. Consistent with the agreed-upon scheme, Gatewick received the items on February 8, 2009. Gatewick shipped the items the following day, February 9, 2009, from the UAE to Iran via Mahan Airways. No U.S. Government authorization was received for the export of the computer motherboards to Iran;

In so doing, Gatewick committed one violation of Section 764.2(d) of the Regulations;

Gatewick used Mahan Airways import code to receive the items in the UAE and then shipped the items from the UAE to Iran via Mahan Airways;
