The Iran Air A330 jet touched down Saturday
after a flight from Toulouse, France, where the headquarters of the
European consortium are located. Iran Air received the first aircraft
from Airbus in January, according to AP.
Iran Air finalized a deal with the European plane maker in December for 100 planes for $18 billion. Iran's flagship carrier has separately agreed to buy 80 planes from U.S. manufacturer Boeing.
Most Iranian planes were purchased before the 1979 Islamic Revolution. As of June last year, only 162 of Iran's 250 commercial planes were flying. The rest were grounded due to lack of spare parts.
