Iran Air has signed a firm order for 20 ATR 72-600s and taken options on a further 20 of the type.
During the negotiations, ATR reported, the Italian and French states “played an important role to achieve the signing of this deal, through the participation of their export credit agencies, respectively Sace and Coface”.
Patrick de Castelbajac, chief executive officer of ATR, declared, “We are honoured to take part in this new era in Iran by providing the national airline with aircraft that will strongly contribute to reinforce and boost regional transportation across the country. We are pleased to offer to the passengers of Iran Air the highest standards of comfort and reliability, as well as the outstanding operational flexibility of the ATR 72-600s.”
