US okays sale of spare airplane parts to Iran

Published: 04.05.14, 09:58 / Israel News

Boeing Co. said Friday that it received U.S. government approval to export certain spare parts for commercial airplanes to Iran.


A Boeing spokesman said that the parts were needed to ensure safe flight, but he declined to describe them further or put a dollar amount on them.


Boeing's last delivery to Iran was a 747-100 jumbo jet in 1979 - three months before American hostages were seized in Tehran.


Birtel said Boeing got a license from the US Treasury Department to export the spare parts under a temporary agreement reached with the Iranians last year. (Reuters)
