Aircrafts Iran: lucrative contracts or heady expectation?


After lifting the sanctions against Iran, this country is very attractive for the world's aircraft manufacturers, since in view of the fact that now the existing fleet is very old - according to some sources the average age of aircraft is about 30 years, we can assume that in the near future the country will buy modern aircraft, and it mostly is not about a few planes, and of the hundreds, which in turn speaks about multi-billion dollar contracts.



About a month ago there were reports that Iran holds talks with Russian aircraft manufacturers for the acquisition of domestic passenger airliners Sukhoi SuperJet 100 и MS-21, And, it was about a dozen aircraft, which naturally is attractive for the Russian aircraft industry. However, the details of the ongoing negotiations were not disclosed, in turn, likely pointing to the fact that representatives of the two countries have not been able to agree on the supply of domestic civil aircraft.



There are several hypotheses as to why negotiations between the Russian and Iranian partners could fail. The most likely cause is considered to be the high cost of domestic aircraft, similar in its price with foreign passenger planes from Airbus, Boeing and Bombardier, the more so, foreign airliners have been tested by time, and in their operation, as a rule, there is no problem, including this applies and maintenance of aircraft. Among other things, there is a perception that Russian aircraft manufacturers could propose special conditions regarding issues of production and subsequent servicing of aircraft that could simply not meet the Iranian partners.



Whatever it was, a few days ago, there was the official information that Iran is ready to buy from the world's leading aircraft manufacturers Airbus and Boeing about three hundred passenger airliners. Released data literally shocked the domestic producers as cooperation with Iran is clearly to bring the desired profit, which is especially important in a crisis situation. However, the final answer to a request for the supply of passenger aircraft Airbus and Boeing has not yet sounded, so it is possible that Iranian airlines will still be interested in cooperating with Russia on this issue.

A number of experts also includes the ability to deploy more of some events - Iran can buy and planes of the Russian manufacturers, and aircraft such corporations as Airbus and Boeing, but the probability of this is very small, as aircraft manufacturers clearly will fight for their products by offering more favorable terms, and Russia Unfortunately there is unlikely to be a competitor. However, there is one very weighty factor - in the event of a resumption of Western sanctions, Iran might stop planes, while Russia is a reliable partner in this regard.

It is expected that more clear prospects for the ongoing negotiations will be announced in the near future, and eating to be more precise, by the beginning of next year, and then we can confidently talk about success or failure of contracts for the supply of aircraft.
