Airbus Delivers Second Jet To Iran Air

Posted March 13, 2017

Iran Air has taken delivery of its first new A330-200.

BJP win in UP defies pollsters
The BJP and the Congress are projected to finish neck and neck with 32 seats each in the 70-member assembly. Shah - known as the "Chanakya" of BJP - managed to forge successful broad coalition of castes in UP.

The Airbus A330, which is an intercontinental plane, landed at Mehrabad International Airport on Saturday morning. The first plane, Airbus A321 that Iran has purchased from the European aviation giant Airbus landed at Tehran's Mehrabad Airport on January 12, 2017. Iran Air took the first airplane on order-a CFM56-powered A321-on January 11. 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. Most of Iran's 250 commercial aircraft were purchased prior to 1979, and 162 are now operational; the rest were grounded because of a parts shortage.

Under the contract, Iran has put orders for 100 aircraft with Airbus. In fact, Republican politicians in the U.S. Congress have pledged to block a separate deal between Boeing and Iran Air calling for delivery of fifty 737 Max 8s, fifteen 777-300ERs and fifteen 777-9s valued at $16.6 billion at list prices.
