Airbus delivers second plane to Iran Air

Iran sealed another deal in June worth around $25 billion with the United States aerospace heavyweight, Boeing, for the purchase of 100 passenger planes.

DUBAI, March 11 An Airbus A330 airliner arrived in Tehran on Saturday, the second of 200 Western-built passenger aircraft ordered by IranAir following the lifting of sanctions on Iran previous year.

The Airbus 330-200 passenger airplane left Toulouse, France at 3:00 (GMT +1) and landed in Tehran at 8:57 (GMT +3:30).

The deliveries are the start of a 100-aircraft order Iran placed with Airbus; rival Boeing Co. also received an order for 80 long- and-short range planes, with its first delivery scheduled for early 2018. It will now be operated by Iran's national flag carrier Iran Air.

A passenger on a Dusseldorf bound train, Bruno Macedo, tweeted: "Breaking: Man with axe chased by police in Dusseldorf". German police say two suspected attackers have been arrested after the incident that took place on Thursday at 9pm.

The Airbus A330 landed at Mehrabad International Airport on Saturday morning, official IRNA news agency reported.

Boeing has said the contract for 80 planes, also finalised in December - Iran's first with a USA aviation firm since its 1979 Islamic revolution - was worth $16.6 billion.

The purchase, along with a historic deal with U.S. manufacturer Boeing, followed a nuclear deal between Iran and world powers lifted some sanctions in 2016, in return for limits on Tehran's atomic program.

The purchases are expected to add over 50 thousand seats to Iran's aviation fleet as well as providing direct employment opportunities for more than 20,000 people.
