The geographical situation of Iran with its expanding spacious levels, relative remoteness of crowded areas from each other, lack of adequate means of transportation (railways and roads), the need to initiate safe and fast connections, and lack of an orderly equipment with high capacity to revive mutual aviation rights with other countries as well as securing more welfare and comfort for Iranians led to a ratification by the board of ministers to establish a national airline corporation on February 10th, 1961.
Following that, on February 24th 1961, both Iranian Airways and Pars Airways merged to form a new airline as Iran Air with the acronyms of HOMA, a griffin of Persian mythology which symbolizes the mythical Bird of Happiness.
