The U.S.-based Boeing aircraft manufacturer has signed a contract to provide Iran with 100 planes, according to Ali Abedzadeh, head of Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization.

The news was published Sunday in the state-run ‘Iran‘ daily newspaper. The deal must still be approved by the U.S. government.

“Of the 250 [passenger] planes in Iran, 230 need to be replaced,” Abedzadeh told the newspaper. He added Iran had signed a contract with Boeing to provide 100 of the aircraft.

It’s the first time Iran has purchased anything from Boeing since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, according to Reuters.
