IranAir Receives First Delivery of Airbus Jet

IranAir has received its first delivery of a jet procured under a nuclear deal struck in 2015 with United States President Barack Obama and other Western leaders.

The jet, which is the first of 100 on order from Airbus, was already painted with the IranAir logo and will go into service Saturday traveling Iran's domestic routes.

IranAir Chairman Farhad Parvaresh said the new planes will allow the airline to upgrade its aging fleet “step by step” over the coming years.

IranAir expects to obtain at least two more of the Airbus A320 jets...
