Iran Air agreement with Airbus_infographic

During Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s official visit to France with French President François Hollande, Iran officials signed agreements with Airbus that cover new aircraft orders and a comprehensive civil aviation cooperation package. With the agreements, Iran Air will acquire a full range of Airbus’ market-leading commercial jetliners – including 21 A320ceo Family, 24 A320neo Family, 27 A330ceo Family, 18 A330-900neo, 16 A350-1000 and 12 A380 aircraft

Iran Air’s agreement to acquire aircraft from all of Airbus’ in-production jetliner families will provide this Iranian flag carrier with a modern, highly efficient fleet capable of meeting its full air transport needs – from regional routes to high-density, long-haul operations.
Signed today in Paris, the agreement for 118 new aircraft spans from Airbus’ single-aisle A320 product line – involving both current engine option (CEO) and new engine option versions (NEO) – to the widebody A330ceo and A330neo, the A350 XWB and A380. Deliveries could start as early as this year.
Covered in the historic accord are: 21 A320ceo Family and 24 A320neo Family jetliners, 27 from the A330ceo Family, 18 A330-900neo aircraft, 16 A350-1000s and 12 A380s. 
While phasing in this major new inventory, Iran Air will be supported by Airbus’ extensive resources in pilot and maintenance training, customer support and services. Iran Air also can benefit from its long experience with Airbus aircraft – and all the advantages of Airbus’ product line commonality – based on the carrier’s current fleet of 19 total A320ceo, A300 and A310 jetliners.  
Additionally, the Iranian air transportation infrastructure will be enhanced through a separate agreement for development of the country’s air navigation services with assistance in airport and aircraft operations, harmonisation of its air regulations, training on the technical and academic levels, guidance in maintenance and repair operations, as well as industrial cooperation.
“I am very proud of all the Airbus teams who quickly mobilised to propose the agreements and make them happen,” said Airbus President and CEO Fabrice Brégier following today’s signing event in Paris, which involved Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and French President François Hollande.
Overall, Iran’s various airlines currently operate a combined 84 Airbus jetliners. In addition to those with Iran Air, the Iranian carriers are: ATA Airlines, Atrak Air, Iran Aseman Airlines, Mahan Air, Meraj Airlines, Qeshm Airlines, Taban Airline and Zagros Airlines.
