Tehran, Kiev Discuss Upgrading Aviation Ties

Head of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi discussed increasing cooperation in the field of air industries with Antonov CEO Oleksandr Kryvokon in Ukraine on Friday.
Iran’s Ambassador in Kiev Mohammad Beheshti Monfared and a number of Ukrainian defense industries official also attended the meeting, in which the future plan for cooperation between the two states in the field of airplane manufacturing was devised, Azer News reported.
The Iranian parliamentary delegation visited different sections of Antonov Airplane Company before the meeting.
Iran and Antonov have been cooperating in the production and operation of aircraft for the past two decades.
Antonov AN-140 airplane is being manufactured in Isfahan under the Ukrainian company’s license and is called Iran-140. This type of plane is produced in three models, including passenger, passenger-transport and military-transport, with a capacity of 52 persons.
After purchasing the production license for the An-140 from Ukraine in 2000, Iran built its first Iran-140 passenger plane in 2003.
The two countries also held talks in the past to produce Antonov-158 with a capacity of 100 persons, but they have not resulted in a deal.
