Europe’s largest airline Lufthansa is in talks with the government over the past weeks for direct investment in airport construction in Iran, ISNA quoted member of Commission of Representatives at Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture, Mahmoud Najafi, as saying on Tuesday. He added that the German airline is also holding negotiations with Iranian airlines for establishment of new flights. Iran is planning to upgrade its ageing air fleet after years of international sanctions imposed over its nuclear energy program prevented the country from doing so. As part of a landmark nuclear deal reached in July, economic sanctions are about to be lifted.
