Iran to Receive Tupolev Tu-204SM Planes

Vice President of Russia's United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) Alexander Tulyakov told reporters on Monday that Iranian airliners have raised the total purchase order for the Tupolev Tu-204SM jets to 20, Mehr news agency reported Tuesday.

The remarks come as Russia was expected to deliver only five Tupolev Tu-204 SM passenger aircraft to Iran under an agreement signed between Russian Ilyushin Finance Company (IFC) and Iran Airtour Airline in 2009.

However, Pratt & Whitney -- an American aircraft engine manufacturer and a major shareholder of Russia's Perm Engine Company -- informed Iran Airtour Airline a year later that the delivery of five Tupolev TU-204SM jetliners equipped with PS-90A2 engines are impossible due to Washington's unilateral sanctions against Tehran.

According to UAC officials, Russia will deliver Tupolev TU-204SM airliners equipped with PS-90A engines to Iran. It seems that Americans have had no role in the development of PS-90A engines.

The Tupolev Tu-204SM, a significant upgrade of Tupolev Tu-204, is a twin-engine medium range Russian airliner capable of carrying 210 passengers.

The aircraft is equipped with the latest navigation and radio communication equipment, as well as state-of-the-art hardware. It is controlled by two pilots instead of three crew members required to navigate the basic Tu-204 version.

The Tupolev Tu-204SM performed its maiden flight from Russia's Ulyanovsk Vostochny Airport on December 29, 2010.

Iran plans to purchase the Russian-built passenger aircraft to renovate its aviation fleet.
