My Aviation Company Limited (My Aviation), headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand, is being designated for acting for or on behalf of Mahan Air by serving as a Mahan Air General Sales Agent (GSA) in Thailand. A GSA is a third party that provides services to an airline under the airline’s brand. There are several types of services and support that GSAs typically offer airlines, including sales and marketing, freight reception and handling, airport warehouse and ramp supervision, administration services, and financial services;
My Aviation provides cargo services to Mahan Air, to include freight booking, and works with local freight forwarding entities to ship cargo aboard regularly scheduled Mahan Air flights to Tehran, Iran. My Aviation has also provided Mahan Air with passenger booking services;
The designation of this GSA reinforces Treasury’s notice to the international aviation community of the sanctions risk for individuals and entities maintaining commercial relationships with Mahan Air and other designated Iranian airlines. In addition to GSA services such as freight booking and handling, the civil aviation industry should conduct due diligence for other activities that, when conducted for or on behalf of a designated person, are potentially sanctionable. Such activities may include reservation and ticketing services, procurement of aircraft parts and equipment, maintenance contracts, airline grounds services, catering, interline transfer and codeshare agreements, and refueling contracts;
Mahan Air was designated in October 2011 pursuant to E.O. 13224 for providing financial, material, or technological support for or to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Qods Force (IRGC-QF), which was itself designated pursuant to E.O. 13224 on October 25, 2007 for its support to numerous terrorist groups. Mahan Air has transported IRGC-QF operatives, weapons, equipment, and funds abroad in support of the IRGC-QF’s destabilizing regional operations. Mahan Air has routinely facilitated the movement of IRGC-QF personnel, fighters, and material, between Iran and Syria for military training, and has facilitated the movement of IRGC-QF members by bypassing normal security protocols and flight manifests. The airline also has moved weapons and personnel for Hizballah and regional armed groups whose actions fuel conflict and exacerbate regional instability. Hizballah was designated by the Department of State as a Foreign Terrorist Organization in October 1997 and as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist pursuant to E.O. 13224 in October 2001. It was listed in January 1995 in the Annex to E.O. 12947, which targets terrorists who threaten to disrupt the Middle East peace process, and also designated in August 2012 pursuant to E.O. 13582, which targets the Government of Syria and its supporters;
