Deal with ATR to provide Iran with 20 planes

TEHRAN, Apr. 10 (MNA) – Deputy-Minister of Road and Urban Planning has announced a 3rd airline manufacturer has signed a deal with Homa to sell 20 of its ATR 72-600, Iran's state news agency IRNA reported.

Mr. Asghar Fakhrieh Kashan told reporters Monday morning that the Italian ATR plane manufacturer had signed a deal with Homa to provide it with 20 planes. This is a third plane manufacturer after Airbus and Boeing had successfully signed lucrative deals with Iran. Efforts to sign a deal with Brazilian manufacturer Embraer had been uninspiring and plans were abandoned in favor of Airbus and Boeing. 

"The deal will provide short-range, cheaply-operated planes for domestic destinations along with long-haul Airbus and Boeing planes which will highly renew the antiquated air fleet," said the deputy-minister.
