Iran Air announced that their deal with boing remains valid even if the USA chooses to change its policy towards Tehran and decides to walk out of the nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
In 2015 Iran and 6 other countries – China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States – signed a landmark deal to resolve Iran’s disputed nuclear program. As a result some of the sanctions imposed on Iran were lifted. This allowed Iran air to sign a deal with Boeing on December 11, 2016 for 80 aircraft including 50 737 MAX 8s, 15 777-300ERs and 15 777-9s, valued at $16.6 billion at list prices.
In addition to that, Iran has also signed a deal with Airbus at the same time for 100 aircraft, 3 of which are already delivered.
The Trump administration believes the deal with Tehran is no longer in America’s interest and might seek to cease it. Iran Air CEO Farzaneh Sharafbafi, however, said that the US Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control licenses for Iran Air’s Boeing planes have been issued and this decision cannot be canceled.
