Aircraft manufacturers compete for Iran’s market

TEHRAN, Jan. 16 (MNA) – Secretary of Iran's Aviation Companies Association Maghsoud Asadi Samani has said that world aircraft manufacturers compete for the Iranian aviation market.

Touching upon the import of aircrafts after the implementation of JCPOA, Asadi Samani asserted “a new ground will be provided for the country’s aviation industry while aircraft builders are seeking to participate in Iran’s market.”

“Airplane building companies are all eying a greater share in the country’s market,” noted the official adding “Iranian airliners are conducting negotiations with Airbus and Boeing trying to ink contracts with the company offering the best proposal.”

Asadi Samani further noted that preliminary talks have been held with manufacturers while the remaining stages are subject to the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA); “the inking of agreements and follow-up issues will be carried out after the official removal of sanctions while the companies are currently investigating the market conducting required coordination for buying aircrafts.”

“Iranian airliners are faced with numerous offers on the part of manufacturing companies which demands exercising a great deal of caution and care in making a wise decision,” he added.

The official further pointed out the financing for buying new aircrafts stressing “several financing and leasing methods will be used in this regard while the plan would not be to import a large number of aircrafts in the early stages.”

“The country needs about 500 aircrafts which will gradually enter the country,” concluded Secretary of Iran's Aviation Companies Association.
