Iran’s 1st newly-purchased ATR plane to arrive in Tehran next week

IRNA – The first plane Iran Air has purchased from French-Italian airplane manufacturer ATR is scheduled to arrive in Tehran next week, Iran Air Managing-Director Farhad Parvaresh said on Monday.

There remains nearly six days to the final delivery of the first ATR plane to Iran, Parvaresh said.

Iran’s national flag carrier signed a final agreement with ATR on April 13 for purchasing 20 passenger planes.

ATR is due to gradually deliver four of the newly-purchased planes to Iran in the near future, the official said.

Asked whether the four airplanes will be delivered at the same time, Parvaresh said it is not clear yet.
