Iran purchases of 7 Airbus planes finalized

Iran’s semi-official ISNA news agency is reporting that a deal to purchase seven planes from Airbus by a private Iranian company has been finalized.

The Wednesday report says that Labor and Social Welfare Minister Ali Rabiei announced the conclusion of the deal with Iran Aseman Airlines and that the aircraft are expected to begin arriving next May.

On Monday, Iran said a delegation from the European aviation giant was in Tehran for talks aimed at finalizing a deal to sell around 100 planes. With international economic sanctions lifted after last year’s nuclear agreement, Iran is seeking to rapidly upgrade its aging and obsolete air fleet.
