State television said helicopters were now able to take part in the search for Aseman Airlines flight EP3704 after the weather improved following blizzard conditions that had hampered search efforts on February 18. "The exact spot of the plane crash was not found, and given the darkness, heavy snowfall and fog in some regions, the aerial search operation was stopped and will be resumed tomorrow", Esmaeil Najjar, head of Iran's Crisis Management Organisation, told the ISNA news agency.

A rescue helicopter searches for the crashed aircraft. However, President Donald Trump's refusal to recertify the deal has injected uncertainty into those sales while Iranians still fly in aging aircraft.

The head of the country's emergency services said moving the bodies of those who had died would prove hard in the bad weather conditions.

This story was first published on CNN.com, "Passenger plane crashes in Iran with 65 aboard, report says".

With decades of worldwide sanctions pending the commercial passenger aircraft fleet of Iran seems to have aged with air accidents becoming quite a regular in the last few years.

It was also gathered that Iran had suffered frequent Aviation issues, maybe because of the aged aircraft they have. However, the breakthrough Nuclear Deal with the U.S. in 2015 has paved way for modernization of the Iran Aircrafts. It is the third largest airline in the country by fleet size - 29 aircraft including six ATR aircraft - right after Iran Air and Mahan Air.
