Two Iranian Airlines Sign MoUs for 73 Airbus Jets

Two private Iranian airlines have signed memoranda of understanding with European aerospace giant Airbus to purchase a total of 73 brand-new jets. 
Iran Airtour signed a deal for 45 A320neo aircraft while Zagros Airlines committed to purchasing 28 new planes, comprising 20 A320neo and 8 A330neo aircraft, Airbus announced in a statement on its website.

“The A320neo Family with its unique features enabling operational efficiency and reliability will contribute to our growth and expansion strategy,” said Majid Shekari, Chairman of Iran Airtour Airlines.

“This commitment for 45 A320neo Family aircraft demonstrates the confidence airlines have in our successful market leading single-aisle for its operational efficiency and unrivaled passenger comfort,” said Fabrice Brégier, Airbus COO and President Commercial Aircraft. “We are delighted to add Iran Airtour as a new Airbus customer and we look forward to our long-term partnership”.

Marzieh Jafarzadeh, head of Iran Airtour Public Relations, said that  Airtour and Airbus reached the “$45 billion agreement” after holding talks for 18 months.

Zagros

Abdolreza Mousavi, Zagros Airlines CEO said, “We are delighted to have been able to reach an agreement with Airbus for these new aircraft. We have been a loyal operator of the A320 Family and the performance, operational and cost efficiencies of Airbus aircraft was the selling point for us to order these aircraft”, said Mousavi. “This represents a practical step for Zagros Airlines’ fleet renewal as well as expanding our operations both domestically and internationally.”

“We thank Zagros Airlines for their trust in our most efficient single and twin-aisle product families. They will allow Zagros to modernise and expand its fleet with minimum change benefiting from our fleet commonality which is unique to Airbus,” said Fabrice Brégier.

Both MoUs are contingent upon all necessary approvals, including those from the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
