The deal includes a mix of new and used jets from the A320 family and the out-of-production A340s. The first deliveries are due as early as July. According to Irani officials, Iran also is interested in Airbus wide-body planes, including A350s and the A380 double-decker as it seeks to add destinations in the U.S., Canada, Australia and Europe to directly serve the Iranian population scattered there rather than connecting through Dubai or Istanbul hubs.

Iran raised its requirement for aircraft to at least 581 planes over the next decade.
