Iran to purchase new airplanes

The chairman of the Civil Committee of the Iranian Parliament said on Tuesday that the country is willing to add new airplanes to its aviation fleet.

Mohammadreza Rezaei-Kouchi said the private sector, provided with banking facilities, is going to buy the planes in the face of US sanctions, Mehr News Agency reported.

“Negotiations are ongoing with several countries to purchase the airplanes and there will be no obstacles facing Iranian companies in that respect,” said the Iranian MP.

Iran Air has been pushing American manufacturer Boeing to revive a large order signed in 2016.

A few months ago, it was reported that the national carrier has sent a letter to Boeing demanding it honor its commitments.

The former road and urban development minister Mohammad Eslami had also said Boeing should be held accountable for the delay in carrying out its contract with Iran Air, and that Iran reserves the right to take legal action over the delay.
