Iran’s Aseman Airlines to get Airbus, Boeing and Superjet planes
Iran’s Aseman Airlines says it is working on a plan to renovate its fleet by procuring a series of planes from the world’s largest aerospace corporation Boeing, European aviation giant Airbus and Russia’s Sukhoi aircraft builder.
The head of Aseman Airline Hossein Alaei said that his company would soon acquire seven Airbus planes through a leasing scheme, adding that the talks had already started and were being pushed forward.
Alaei also said that his company had conducted independent talks with Boeing and Airbus to procure planes.
“So far, representatives of Embraer and Sukhoi have visited Iran at the invitation of Aseman Airlines and carried out trial flights. The last such trial flight involved a Sukhoi Superjet 100 that was carried out in Tehran last week," Press-TV cited him as saying.
