Iran selects Airbus for its civil aviation renewal

In a significant step for modernising Iran’s commercial aviation sector, Iranian officials have signed two agreements with Airbus at the Elysée Palace during Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s official visit to France.

One agreement covers Iran Air’s acquisition of 118 Airbus jetliners – 73 widebodies and 45 single-aisle aircraft – and includes pilot and maintenance training and support services.

The other is a comprehensive cooperation agreement to develop air navigation services, airport and aircraft operations, regulatory harmonisation, technical and academic training, maintenance, repair and industrial cooperation in the country.
