Iran Air sends letter to Boeing demanding US firm to honor its commitments

Tehran, April 11, IRNA – Iran Air Managing Director said on Sunday that Iran Air has sent a letter to Boeing demanding the US company to honor its commitments to Iran.

Speaking to IRNA, Alireza Barkhor said that Iran Air sought to revive the contract for buying airplanes from Boeing.

Iran Air sent a letter to Boeing demanding the airplane manufacturing company to carry out its commitments and respect the human rights of Iranians, he added.

Iran has demanded the US company, Boeing, to provide Iran Air with good airplanes, suitable and safe parts as per a contract signed in 2015.

Earlier on Saturday, Iran’s Road and Urban Development Minister Mohammad Eslami said that Boeing should be held accountable for the delay in carrying out its contract with 'Iran Air'.

Eslami pointed out that Iran reserves the right to take legal action against Boeing for the delay in carrying out the contract with Iran.

Iran Air and other companies that have contracts with Boeing reserve the right to hold the US company accountable for failure to fulfill obligations of the contracting party, he noted.

"Iranian companies have the right as per the contract to pursue their contract," he further noted.

In early June 2016, Boeing announced that Iranian airlines can buy their needed passenger planes in euro rather than in dollar in case the US does not open up its financial system to Iran.

“There is plenty of opportunities still for Boeing," then Boeing's Vice-President for Middle East Sales Marty Bentrott said.

The media in late January quoted a top Iranian official in a report as saying that the country planned to purchase over 100 planes from Boeing.

The same report said that Iran’s order list from the American aviation giant included narrow-body 737s for domestic flights and two-aisle 777s for long-haul routes.
