US aerospace company Boeing is not expecting any delays or cancellations to its orders in the Middle East, according to a senior company executive.
In December 2016, the US aircraft manufacturer announced a $16.6 billion (AED61 billion) 80 aircraft deal with IranAir which includes 50 narrow-body 737 MAX aircraft and 30 long-haul 777s, split equally between the 777-300ER, and the 406-seat 777-9.
Subsequently, Iran’s Deputy Transport Minister Asghar Fakhrieh-Kashan said that the deal was only 50 percent of the announced figure.
“Our orders are holding firm. We are very happy about that,” company president for Middle East, North Africa and Turkey (MENAT) Bernie Dunn told Arabian Business in an interview. More info
