Iran’s national carrier has signed an agreement to buy 20 new passenger airplanes with an option for 20 more from French-Italian aircraft manufacturer ATR, Iranian media reported Tuesday.
The purchase comes a week after Iran Air signed a deal to buy 118 planes from the European consortium Airbus, signaling a major effort to develop the civilian aviation sector now that international sanctions have been lifted under a landmark nuclear deal.

The Americans have "armed" Iran and pretty much guaranteed their survival for the next decade with those billions of dollars. And what does the US get in return? Jack s****!
This is such disgusting news and meanwhile the US infrastructure is crumbling. Army and navy being downsized...health premiums going through the roof! That money should have been used to spend on the many citizens of US desperately trying to make ends meet!
I hope Iran goes down and somehow US will "win" one day in trade and deals
