Boeing signs deal to sell aircraft to Iran Air


US aircraft manufacturer Boeing has clinched a deal to sell an unspecified number of passenger aircraft to Iran Air.
Boeing said in a statement that it had signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) with Iran Air which expressed the airline's intent to purchase Boeing commercial passenger aircraft.
The aircraft manufacturer added: "Boeing negotiated the MOA under authorisations from the US government following a determination that Iran had met its obligations under the nuclear accord reached last summer, London's Air Cargo News reported.
"Boeing will continue to follow the lead of the US Government with regards to working with Iran's airlines, and any and all contracts with Iran's airlines will be contingent upon US government approval."
The lifting of economic sanctions by the West on Iran in January this year in return for Iranian concessions on its nuclear development programme has opened the door for the likes of Boeing and Airbus to sell to Iran.
However, tensions remain in relations with Iran and the West, and any deals such as these would not be without controversy. Some members of the US Congress are likely to oppose any sales of Boeing aircraft to Iran Air, for example.
Reports vary on which aircraft types and in what numbers would be included in the deal. B737s, B777s and even B747-8s have all been mentioned as possible options.
