PressTV reports that Iran is in talks with six countries to purchase new commercial aircraft to renovate the country’s aviation fleet after the removal of sanctions.
The Secretary of the Association of Iranian Airlines, Maqsoud As’adi-Samani (pictured), told the Tasnim news agency:
“After the Vienna agreement, chief executives or sales managers of all aircraft manufacturers have visited Iran for negotiations on selling planes.”
Executives of plane manufacturers from France, Brazil, Canada, Russia, Japan and China have traveled to Iran to introduce their products.
Officials have said Iran would need between 400-500 new aircraft worth at least $20 billion over the next decade.
