ATR delivered five ATR 72-600 aircraft to Iranian carrier Iran Air just before U.S. sanctions came back into force, meaning the carrier has now received 13 out of an order of 20 aircraft, the Toulouse-based manufacturer said. The aircraft took off from Toulouse on Aug. 4, arriving in Tehran’s Mehrabad International Airport after a refueling stop for a welcome ceremony that took place on Aug. 5.
