The Iranian government is in talks with the European aircraft manufacturer Airbus to purchase 45 helicopters, a deputy roads and urban development minister said.

“The Health Ministry is planning to order 45 HEMS [Helicopter Emergency Medical Service] helicopters and the purchase is being negotiated by the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development,” Asghar Fakhrieh-Kashan also told Mehr News Agency.

The Ministry of Roads and Urban Development has previously helped flag carrier Iran Air secure 100 passenger planes from the European aircraft giant.

Fakhrieh-Kashan noted that Iran is holding negotiations to merge the helicopter order into the Iran Air-Airbus contract signed in December.

“Ports and Maritime Organization is also planning to hold a tender to purchase three search-and-rescue helicopters,” he added.
