12 A380s

Wow. Good news for Airbus.

Quoting KarelXWB (Thread starter):
16 A350s

Nice boost for the -1000!

Quoting KarelXWB (Thread starter):
45 A330s

Nice mix of ceo and neo.

Quoting KarelXWB (Thread starter):
45 A320s

Again, nice mix. Must admit, I thought there'd be more A320s, but what the heck, that's a very nice order in anyone's money.


12 A380s. Some people will be choking on their dinner tonight!   

So, are these all for Iran Air? Struggling to see where Boeing long-haul planes would be needed with that mix.

Edited after KarelXWB posted additional info!

12 A380's the program lives.. JL lives! upping the count from the 8 speculated to an order for 12

Well done Airbus, Iran and RR for being progressive and looking to a co-operative future.

A few thoughts:

I'm going to assume that RR are going to sew up the WB engines on this which gives them a count of 170 plus spares a good day for them.

The A320 count seems low.

No ATR's so the 100 seat and regional "jet" order is still in play, lets hope that Canada can free Bombadier to start a C-Series sales campaign.

They seem to have the 787-8/9/10 sector covered with A330ceo and neo, the 77W sector covered with the A350-1000 and the Ultra-jumbo sector covered with the A380-800 showing that it can be done and without buying Boeing, this should be a wake up call to the US, join in or be left behind.

YEEEEESS !!!!

http://www.airbus.com/newsevents/news-events-single/detail/iran-deal/

Iran officials have signed two agreements with Airbus covering new aircraft orders and a comprehensive civil aviation co-operation package. The agreements were signed at the Élysée Palace, Paris, during Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s official visit to France with French President François Hollande.
Iran Air has signed an agreement with Airbus for the acquisition of the full range of new Airbus airliners (73 widebodies and 45 single aisle). This includes pilot and maintenance training and support services to help the entry into service and efficient operations of these new aircraft.
In parallel the Minister of Roads and Urban Development, Dr. Abbas Ahmad Akhoundi, has signed a comprehensive co-operation agreement as part of the country’s modernisation of its civil aviation sector, to support the development of air navigation services (ATM), airport and aircraft operations, regulatory harmonization, technical and academic training, maintenance, repair and industrial cooperation.
These two agreements took place as part of the implementation of the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action) on January 16th 2016, and its associated rules and guidance.
The agreement for 118 new aircraft signed by Mr Farhad Parvaresh, Iran Air Chairman and CEO, includes 21 A320ceo family, 24 A320neo family, 27 A330ceo family, 18 A330neo (-900), 16 A350-1000 and 12 A380.
"Today’s announcement is the start of re-establishing our civil aviation sector into the envy of the region and along with partners like Airbus we’ll ensure the highest world standards,” said Mr Farhad Parvaresh, Iran Air Chairman and CEO.
“The skies have cleared for Iran’s flying public and Airbus is proud to welcome Iran’s commercial aviation back into the international civil aviation community. Today is a significant step in the overhaul and modernisation of Iran’s commercial aviation sector and Airbus stands ready to play its role in supporting it,” said Fabrice Brégier, Airbus President and CEO.
Airbus is the world’s leading aircraft manufacturer of passenger airliners, ranging in capacity from 100 to more than 500 seats. Airbus has design and manufacturing facilities in France, Germany, the UK, and Spain, and subsidiaries in the US, China, India, Japan and in the Middle East. In addition, it provides the highest standard of customer support and training through an expanding international network.
Iran Air, we take you there, we take you back!

This is a huge order. Will be interesting to see how the financing plays out. This is an EK size order. With a book value in the tens of billions of dollars. Iran state media is reporting that the planes will be paid for within 10 years. http://news.yahoo.com/iran-delivery-...four-years-082413259--finance.html

Will be interesting to see what is made public about financing. This just seems like too much money for Iran Air in the short term.

Any news/update on the rumored used A340's for intermediate lift?

how about all the other Iranian airlines, that order is for Iran Air only?

interesting times ahead

Looks like Boeing will lose out on this one..guess Donald Trump and the other idiots in Congress are happy Boeing will be losing out billions of dollars in revenues/income.

Quoting BoeingVista (Reply 14):
No ATR's so the 100 seat and regional "jet" order is still in play, lets hope that Canada can free Bombadier to start a C-Series sales campaign.

Maybe they can sign that one in Italy, at least the ATR. Italy is a big partner in ATR. Italians are covering naked statues to please Iranians so they really predict good deals.

Considering Trump is not in office, I do not see how he would carry any weight on this discussion. Boeing was never in the running on this one, they just kept Airbus honest and ensured they got a good value for their money. IMO it doesn't matter who wins in the US in November, Iran was never sending any of the recent re payment of funds anywhere near Boeing when it came to an aircraft order. Its going to be a while before any major US-Iran trade becomes normalized.
Congrats to Airbus on this one, they also inked a nice deal for auto production in Iran as well...big day for transport over there.

Iran Orders 118 Airbus Jets - Part 1

Thu Jan 28, 2016 5:32 pm

Superb news. 12 X A380 is a much better result than expected.

Shame they didn't take up the, much anticipated, A340s, to tide them over, but I guess we can't have everything.

Disappointing that domestic politics is going to play a hand in, possibly, preventing Boeing being able to land a similar order, as I'm sure they'll have some products that would be perfectly suited to requirements the Iranians might have identified.

Though I am wondering if there's going to be reports of random explosions, on the 18:00 news, as all those who predicted another year with no A380 orders explode?

Quoting BoeingVista (Reply 27):
My feeling is TK for this.

The CEO of TK said just a few days ago that they weren't considering ordering any A380s: WSJ: Turkish Airlines Chief Predicts Growth Despite Terror Attacks
Quote:
The Airbus A380 double-decker remains off the agenda, he said. Used A380 jetliners, which British Airways parent International Consolidated Airlines Group SA said last week it could introduce through a lease arrangement, aren't something Turkish Airlines would consider, Mr. Kotil said.


I'd say the most likely suspects for the rumored 20 A380 order are
1) China - to be split among the CHI3
2) SQ - as replacements for the rest of their A380s coming off lease
3) SV - to replace their 747s

Quoting ec99 (Reply 21):
This is an EK size order.

It's even more impressive than an EK order as they ordered models from the entire product family.

Quoting scbriml (Reply 46):
Yes, this order is just for Iran Air.

   IR is the flag carrier, no way those A380s would end up with another airline.
