Iran Air takes delivery of its first A332

Iran Air has taken delivery of its first new A330-200. The delivery of the aircraft is part of Iran Air's major fleet renewal plan, and is the first wide body from a firm order placed by the national carrier of Iran in December 2016 for 100 Airbus aircraft (46 single and 54 wide-body) to renew and expand its fleet with new aircraft.   

Iran Air's A332 features a two class cabin layout, seating 32 passengers in business and 206 in economy. The delivery, which took place at the Airbus delivery centre in Toulouse, marks yet another milestone for Iran Air, as it celebrates its 56 anniversary since establishment.
