Iran’s state airline, IranAir just took delivery of their first Airbus A321 jetliner with the company paint scheme and logo. Iran’s purchase of these new Airbus aircraft is only possible due to the lifting of sanctions under the Iran nuclear deal framework.

“The technical acceptance has been done with formal delivery still to be done,” an Airbus spokesman said.

A spokesman for Iran’s civil aviation authority said the aircraft had been placed on the country’s aircraft register, indicating IranAir had taken ownership of the aircraft, the first of around 200 Western aircraft ordered since sanctions were lifted. – Reuters
