Airbus negotiating deal to sell 114 aircraft to Iran

Iran’s plan to buy more than 100 aircraft from the French aircraft maker Airbus has gained momentum as Iran’s president is set to visit Paris.

Iran Air Chairman and Managing Director Farhad Parvaresh said the deal to buy 114 Airbus Group SE jets will be signed during Rouhani's trip. Parvaresh said the purchase may include double-decker A-380 superjumbo jet, and A-320 aircraft. Iran’s Minister of Roads and Urban Development Abbas Akhoundi also said the first of the 114 aircraft are expected to be delivered before March 21. Iran is seeking to renovate its aging aviation fleet following the lifting of sanctions earlier this month. The country is also trying to attract Western companies to its huge market, which has been largely untapped in recent years due to sanctions over it nuclear program. The capital Tehran hosted the CAPA Iran Aviation Summit on Sunday, with 85 international companies and conglomerates attending the event.
