A team from the American Boeing Company is due to arrive in Tehran next week for talks with Iran Air and other Iranian airliners.

A statement issued by flag carrier Iran Air said the team will negotiate future cooperation in providing support to the existing fleet owned by the Iranian airliners.

Iran’s Minister of Road and Urban Development Abbas Akhundi said last February that following US government’s green light to the American company, Iran has invited Boeing for talks in Tehran.

Boeing Co. said in February  that it received a license from the U.S. government to begin commercial discussions with Iranian airlines, opening the door to what could be the first U.S. jet deliveries to the Islamic Republic since the 1970s.

Airbus Group SE in January signed a cooperation agreement with Iranian officials for the purchase of 127 new aircraft that range in size from single-aisle jets all the way to its double-deck A380.
