Iran reveals some details of aircrafts it wants to purchase
Tehran, Iran, Feb.14
Iran's Minister of Roads and Urban Development Mohammad Eslami announced that the country is going to buy a number of aircrafts.
Spokesman for Iran's Civil Aviation Organization (CAO) confirmed the purchase of new aircrafts but he did not address any details about the timing.
"The people's demands for aircrafts should be met. Also, when negotiating with dealers, the requirements of the national aviation organization of Iran should be observed," Spokesman for Iran's Civil Aviation Organization (CAO) Reza Jafarzadeh told Trend.
"Iran's airlines can import aircrafts in accordance with the CAO standards,” he said.
“The organization gave the required licenses to airline companies, to develop their own fleet, to develop their airports,” he added.
“Iranian airline companies have always been trying to import aircraft and this is one of the goals of the National Aviation Organization as well,” said Jafarzadeh.
He didn't go into any details of the new aircraft, or when it will arrive in Iran. He didn't give away the name of the aircraft manufacturer either.
Jafarzadeh said CAO is tasked with identifying the required standards for the aircraft, so there are certain conditions and qualifications.
"The import of the aircraft should be based on compliance with the requirements of the organization, and any aircraft which passes these requirements, have the right to import aircraft into the country," he added.
