Iran about its historic deal to buy Boeing planes

Iran about its historic deal to buy Boeing planes

On June 14, Iran has finalized a historic deal with Boeing–country to buy passenger planes from the U.S. aircraft manufacturer as part of an Iranian strategy for upgrading the civilian air fleet. Such an agreement, if completed, would be an extraordinary commercial transaction between the U.S. company and Iran. Important to note that only six months ago Iran got rid of the antinuclear international sanctions.

The deal on buying the Boeing aircraft by Tehran will be announced in the coming days, said Abbas Akhoundi, minister of roads and urban development in Iran. In the case of full approving this Iranian-American deal, innovative Boeings will be the first aircraft flying over Iran since 1979. As you can remember, in 1979 was a year of an Islamic Revolution. Actually, IranAir told it would acquire more than 100 Boeing jets, all of them could be bought under the potential multi-billion-dollar deal.

The largest commercial agreement between a U.S. company and Iran became possible in view of lifting the sanctions six months ago. Iran promised to fulfill the agreement and to stop its own nuclear weapons program. Nevertheless, a Boeing official confirmed in an email to Reuters that any agreements reached will be contingent on U.S. government approval.
