    Iran signs contract to buy 60 Boeing aircraft

    Iran's Asman Airways signed a contract with Boeing for the purchase of 60 Boeing 737 Max aircraft, the official IRNA news agency reported on Tuesday.
    The agency confirmed that representatives of the two companies signed the contract in Tehran after negotiations lasted over a year.

    Boeing said the agreement included the purchase of 30 of the model, as well as rights to purchase an additional 30 aircraft of the same model.

    A memorandum of agreement has been signed with Asman expressing the intention to purchase the 30 aircraft at the existing price and at a value of up to $ 3 billion.

    Boeing said deliveries would be arranged to begin in 2022.

    It noted that it negotiated the Memorandum of Agreement under a US government mandate after Iran fulfilled its obligations under the nuclear agreement signed in 2015.

    Information about Boeing
    The Boeing 747, popularly known as Jumbo Jet, is one of the most famous jet planes. It flew for the first time officially in 1970. For more than 35 years it has been the record holder in terms of volume.

    But that number was seized by the E-380. Note that the Antonio 225, a cargo aircraft, is the largest aircraft in the world in service.

    The Boeing 747 can carry 524 passengers, with a floor and a half floor until February 2006, of which 1430 were in service, making it one of Boeing's profitable aircraft. It can fly at high altitudes at speeds of up to 1041 km / h and a distance of 13446 km without continuous refueling.

    It is enough to fly from Hong Kong to New York without a stop. In 1989, one of its copies flew from London to Sydney non-stop on an 18,000-km journey that lasted 20 hours and 9 minutes. However, there was no passenger or cargo on this flight. In August 2016, Boeing announced that it was suspending Boeing 747.
