TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -
"Boeing officials are in Iran now and we are negotiating delivery of Boeing 777 airplane with them. The plane is expected to be delivered to Iran by the next one and a half month in case the two sides reach the final agreement and the talks succeed,” he said.
Boeing has offered this plane, already ordered by Turkish airline, to Iran since Turkey had refused to take delivery of the Boeing 777.
Iran’s new Airbus 321 (first one delivered to Iran after the JCPOA) have had 817 flights over past weeks carrying over 68.000 passengers, he said, adding, the plane is capable of flying over 14 hours daily.
The second plane (Airbus 330) has flown for 151 hours and the third one for 55 hours.
