The first long-range wide-body Airbus A330 from a series of aircraft that Iran has purchased from the French aerospace giant in a bid to renovate its aging fleet landed in Tehran on Saturday, Tasnim news reported.
The Airbus A330, which is an intercontinental plane, landed at Mehrabad International Airport on Saturday morning.
The aircraft has 238 seats including 36 business class seats. The range of the airplane is about 13,400km.
The first Airbus A321 purchased from the European giant had been delivered to Iran Air earlier on January 12.
During a January 2016 visit to Paris by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Tehran signed a major contract with Airbus worth about $27 billion to buy 118 planes.
