Iran to receive second Airbus on Saturday

Versions of the A330 have a range of 5,000 to 13,430 kilometers and can accommodate up to 335 passengers in a two-class layout or carry 70 tons of cargo.

The first Airbus A321 purchased from the European giant had been delivered to Iran Air earlier on January 12.

LONDON-Airbus SE said Friday it had delivered the first long-range airliner to Iran since the easing of sanctions on the country, marking another milestone for controversial agreements the European plane maker and rival Boeing Co. struck previous year to replenish Iran's aging fleet of planes.

Officials attend a ceremony held beside the Airbus A330-200 after it touched down at Mehrabad Airport in Tehran.

Airbus forecasts that Iran will require some 400-to-500 new aircraft to modernize and expand its existing passenger fleet to catch up with years of pent-up demand on domestic and global routes.

The first Airbus plane - an A320 - arrived in Tehran on January 11.

The US-led sanctions against Iran prevented global plane providers from selling aircraft to Iran. The handover took place at Airbus's Toulouse delivery facility.

In December, the deal with Boeing was finalized, allowing Iran to buy 80 planes within 10 years.

With removal of sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran and signing of a deal to purchase 200 new airplanes by Iran's national carrier, Iran Air (Homa), a new chapter was opened in renovations of the country's aviation fleet. Abbas Akhoundi, Iranian urban development minister, said a second A330 would arrive soon.
