Iran Air’s 1st Boeing Delivery Within a Month

The first passenger jet Iran has ordered from American planemaker Boeing, a 777-300ER,  will join Iran's air fleet within a month, says deputy minister of roads and urban development Asghar Fakhrieh-Kashan.

After lengthy negotiations following the nuclear deal Iran clinched in 2015 with world powers, Boeing secured a contract in December with IranAir for sales of 80 planes—the first such transaction in decades.

"If the plane's options agree with the needs and preferences of IranAir, it will be delivered within a month; otherwise in case we require additional options in the plane's interior pertaining to, for example, the galley or the number of seats, the delivery will be postponed for a further one month," the deputy minister was quoted by Mehr News Agency as saying.

Fakhrieh-Kashan noted that the aforementioned Boeing was initially ordered by Turkish Airline, who later cancelled the order. Under Boeing's agreement with Iran's flag carrier, the American planemaker had committed to delivering the first plane by 2018.
