Iran Air and Airbus have signed a firm contract for 100 aircraft in an historic first deal since sanctions were lifted on the country.
The agreement covers 46 A320 Family, 38 A330 Family and 16 A350 XWB aircraft.
Deliveries will begin in early 2017 with all 200 wings made at Broughton.
“This is a landmark agreement not only because it paves the way for Iran Air’s fleet renewal," said Fabrice Bregier, Airbus President and CEO.
“Our overall accord includes pilot training, airport operations and air traffic management so this agreement is also a significant first step in the overall modernisation of Iran’s commercial aviation sector."
Farhad Parvaresh, Iran Air Chairman and CEO, said: "I am delighted that we have reached an agreement to go to the next decisive phase and start taking delivery of new aircraft.
"I am gratified that this new round of cooperation with Airbus has come to fruition and brought us closer with more practical steps to follow for Iran Air’s fleet renewal.
"Iran Air considers this agreement an important step towards a stronger international presence in civil aviation.
"We hope this success signals to the world that the commercial goals of Iran and its counterparts are better achieved with international cooperation and collaboration."
The agreement is subject to US government Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) export licences which were granted in September and November 2016.
These licenses are required for products containing 10 per cent or more US technology content.
