A Qeshm Air Airbus A300-600, registration EP-FQO performing flight QB-2210 from Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen (Turkey) to Tehran Imam Khomeini (Iran), departed Sabiha Gokcen's runway 06 and was climbing through FL240 out of Istanbul when the crew stopped the climb, shut the left hand engine (CF6) down due to abnormal engine parameters and returned to Sabiha Gokcen for a safe landing on runway 06 about 35 minutes after departure.
