Soon after his resignation, Minister of Roads and Urban Development Abbas Akhoundi assigned Mohammad Khodakarami as the caretaker director of ICO. In addition to his career in Iran Aseman Airlines for 26 years, Abedzadeh has also been a board member at Meraj Airlines and Iranian Airports Holding Company, Mehr News Agency reported.
