IranAir Reminds Boeing About 2016 Contract Commitments

April 12, 2021

I ranAir had sent a letter to Boeing in late 2020 asking the Chicago-based jet maker to clarify the status of the deal it signed with the Iranian airline in 2016, Aireza Barkhor, the company’s, CEO said on Sunday.

“We reminded the aircraft maker of its commitments and the human rights issues US always claims to advocate. It is the right of the Iranian people to experience safe aviation operations and have access to adequate and efficient aircraft spare parts as per the contract,” he was quoted as saying by IRNA.

Echoing the same remarks, Minister of Roads and Urban Development Mohammad Eslami said on Saturday, “Boeing must be accountable for its contract with Iran Air.”

In 2016, Boeing announced an order for 80 brand new aircraft. Including a mix of widebodies and narrow bodies, IranAir planned a fleet transition to newer jets after being shut out from taking new aircraft due to economic sanctions.
