Five new ATR planes are expected to land in Tehran’s Mehrabad International Airport on Sunday 9:00 local time.

The landing, which is taking place hours before the deadline for the reimposition of the first round of US sanctions against Iran, comes after Iran Air took delivery of five ATR 72-600 turboprops on Saturday, the Iranian flag carrier airline’s public relations told Financial Tribune.

Following the new deliveries, Iran Air has received a total of 13 ATR aircraft, as part of its post-sanctions order from the Franco-Italian firm for 20+20 jets. 
The flag carrier has also received three brand new jets from Airbus to date.
