Boeing to Deliver 2 Passenger Planes to Iran in 1 Month

Informed sources disclosed that the US giant aviation company Boeing will deliver two Boeing 777 passenger planes to Iran in less than a month.
The two 777 Boeing passenger planes will be delivered to Iran`s national flag carrier Iran Air in the coming weeks. the Islamic republic news agency quoted an informed source as saying.
The Boeing 777 passenger plane is a two-engine wide-body aircraft and is suitable for long-distance journey of over 17.000 kilometers.
“Since 30 out of 80 passenger planes purchased from Boeing are 777 model. the giant aviation company has announced that it will deliver two of the same model to Iran.” the source added.
He noted that 15 of the 777 model will be 350-seated and the remaining 15 will be 390-seated aircraft.
In a relevant development last week. Iran signed a new agreement with the giant aviation company Boeing to purchase several twinjet narrow-body passenger planes.
The agreement was signed between Iran`s Aseman Airlines and Boeing and involves the purchase of 30 Boeing 737 MAX planes.
The agreement came after almost a year of negotiations between Aseman Airlines and Boeing.
Boeing is to provide 50 planes of the same type to Iran’s flag-carrier airline Iran Air through a similar agreement. The overall value of Iran Air’s order that also involves 30 long-range wide-body 777 aircraft is estimated to be $16.6 billion.
The planes are expected to be delivered to Aseman Airlines from 2019. The Iranian airline is expected to receive at least five of the purchased aircraft during the same year.
Boeing 737 MAX planes – that would enter service in the second half of 2017 – have a passenger capacity of 130 people and are specifically adequate for domestic and regional flights.
The planes that Aseman Airlines has purchased from Boeing would increase the company’s passenger transportation capacity to above 8.000 seats.
Iran Air said in December 2016 that it had finalized an agreement with Boeing to buy 80 new planes. The company accordingly announced that Boeing would start to deliver the planes in 2018 and the deliveries would be completed within 10 years.
Iran has already received the first three of a total of 100 Airbus planes that it has purchased from the European company through an agreement worth around $18 billion. More deliveries are expected to take place over the next months.
