IranAir gets first new Airbus under sanctions deal
The Airbus A321 jetliner has been painted in IranAir livery and is expected to be delivered later this week.
Iranian regulators said the aircraft had been placed on the country's aircraft register, indicating IranAir had taken ownership of the aircraft: the first of around 200 Western aircraft ordered since sanctions were lifted.
The 189-seat jet was assembled in Hamburg, Germany. From there, it is expected to be transferred to Airbus headquarters in Toulouse, France, for a formal handover on Wednesday. ■
