Iran’s third of the 100 planes it purchased from Airbus following a landmark nuclear deal with world powers landed at Mehrabad International Airport in Tehran on Saturday afternoon.
The Iran Air A330 jet landed in Tehran after a flight from Toulouse, France, home to the headquarters of the European consortium, IRNA reported.
It has 32 business and 206 economy class seats.
Iran Air received its first and the second planes from Airbus in January and March.
Iran’s flag carrier sealed a deal with Airbus in December for 100 planes. It separately reached an agreement to buy 80 planes from Boeing.
Most of Iran’s 250 commercial planes were purchased before the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
