Hi NetBackup Experts,
Is there a recommended throughput or IOPS for a Disk storage repository (SAN / DAS) for NetBackup that will be able to utilized the AIR functionality?
Thanks in advance.

The requirements are really around the storage used for MSDP. And the requirement is for throughput rather than IOPS.
This link provides the details https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/doc/25074086-136046435-0/v24630236-136046435
AIR throughput is generally limited by the network link, so storage speed is less of an constraining factor.
Hope this helps

And a additional recommendation beside what @davidmoline mentioned.
Organize you workload. Don't mix read and write workload for spinning disks at the same time - it will kill performance.
Write to disk during night for backup.
Read from disk during day time for replications
