Iran purchasing new aircraft: Minister

Iran is in the process of buying new aircraft, said Minister of Roads and Urban Development Mohammad Eslami.

Pointing to the launch of special financial channel for the purchase of aircraft, Eslami said the process of buying a number of new aircraft is underway, reported Mehr News Agency.

Following the signing of JCPOA to reopen trade links, Iran Air ordered a total of 200 aircraft from Western planemakers including from ATR, which is based in Toulouse, France.

ATR delivered 13 of the 20 turboprop aircraft bought by Iran Air while the rest are yet to be delivered; Airbus, which delivered three aircraft before the licenses were withdrawn, continues to show the order as active on its books; Boeing never officially added Iran's order to its list of sold jets and has said it will not pursue the deal.
