An Airbus A350 wide-body passenger jet made a symbolic first landing in Iran nearly a month after the manufacturer signed a deal with Tehran to deliver 118 new aircraft, Iranian media reported Saturday.

As part of an effort to revamp its aging fleet, Iran has signed deals with the European manufacturer to purchase 118 Airbus planes, including 16 Airbus A350 XWBs.

Iran’s Mehr news service published photographs of the aircraft’s pilot and an Iranian delegate boarding and touring the plane.

In January, UN, EU and US sanctions were lifted from Iran following Tehran’s implementation of its obligations under the nuclear deal signed with six world powers to ensure the peaceful nature of its nuclear program.

On Friday, a Boeing spokesman told US media that Washington had given it the green light to begin talks with Iranian airlines.
