IranAir aims to take delivery of five more ATR turboprop aircraft, it said on Saturday, easing a state of limbo surrounding Western plane deals since Washington exited a nuclear sanctions pact between Iran and major world powers.

Iran’s flag carrier posted a picture on Twitter of five new ATR 72-600 planes outside the factory where they are built in Toulouse, France, and said they would soon arrive in Tehran.

IranAir Chief Executive Farzaneh Sharafbafi was in Toulouse to receive the new planes, Iranian news agency IRNA said.
