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.
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.
