Iran finance deal for Airbus jets closer says Reuters

Posted 8 November 2016 · Add Comment

News agency Reuters has reported that Iran has reached a deal with a foreign leasing company to finance the first 17 jets it plans to buy from Airbus.

The deal removes a significant hurdle to securing the first tranche of jets, following uncertainty over financing and political opposition in the United States and Iran, though the Reuters ources caution months of talking have thrown up new potential hurdles.

Talks are expected to resume soon between Iran and Boeing  to finalise the U.S. company's deal to sell or lease more than 100 jets: a transaction that could also involve third parties.

Iranian officials declined to name the lessor involved.
