Senior Official: No Sukhoi for Iran Air

Iran’s flag carrier airline, Iran Air, has no plan to renovate its fleet with Russian-made Sukhoi jets, even now that buying aircraft from western planemakers has faced serious challenges amid US sanctions. 

Ali Asghar Fakhrieh Kashan, an advisor to the minister of roads and urban development and senior negotiator for Iran Air’s plane orders, made the above statement on Monday, adding that the ministry has not received any proposal for bartering Sukhoi jets with oil, referring to rumors of late for that matter.

However, “other [private] airlines are free to purchase Sukhoi jets."
