Iran Could Begin Making Parts For Airbus Group SE

Thu Mar 17, 2016 12:39 pm

Iran could begin making parts for Airbus Group SE aircraft under plans being discussed following January’s historic agreement to purchase 118 jetliners from the European manufacturer.
Airbus’s Middle East office said the company is evaluating areas of industrial cooperation with Iran that may include component production and maintenance and overhaul work.

Iran developed an ability to make plane parts in order to keep its aircraft flying during years of economic sanctions. Iranian Aviation and Space Industries Association President Amin Salari said in an interview in Tehran that it can offer both “a level of know-how” and very competitive labor costs.
Should an agreement be reached, Iran will join Mubadala Development Co.’s Strata unit as a Middle Eastern parts supplier to Airbus. The Abu Dhabi-based business, which began operations in 2010, has $7.5 billion worth of orders from the European company and its U.S. rival Boeing Co. through 2030.
Work Share

Countries funding major aircraft purchases are in a stronger position to seek a share of the work, with the vast orders placed by United Arab Emirates carriers Etihad Airways and Emirates bolstering Mubadala’s hand. Iran, which wants to develop an aviation industry, says it may need 400 jets in a decade.

The Islamic republic has around 15 maintenance and overhaul companies, a third of them state owned, Salari said, with capabilities in areas including cabin refurbishment, aircraft seats, fiber-glass parts and cockpit panels.

Very smart idea on Iran's part. Once they become a part of Airbus' supply chain, there will be no way that the EU can impose any sort of economic sanctions.

They have probably got a fair bit of experience in manufacturing parts and doubtless they've needed to manufacture parts for their ageing fleets in the years of sanctions
Must think up a new one soon, slow moving brain trying to get into gear ;)

But that won't stop the United States...

Nor would that stop EU itself.

The whole world is trading with Iran now, specially Europe which has signed multi-billion dollar deals with Iran, except for the United States and the Zionist regime. My point is that Europe would find it harder to re-impose sanctions compared to the United States.

I am really glad these aviation related sanctions are removed on IranAir! Now it can compete again with others and provide safer travel for Iranians.
