UPDATE 2-Iran completes long-awaited ATR turboprop aircraft deal | Reuters:

"Iran secured a contract with a third Western aircraft supplier on Thursday since the easing of sanctions by completing a deal to buy 20 regional turboprops from Europe's ATR, part of an effort to modernise the nation's creaking fleet.

After months of talks that required navigating a way through separate U.S. sanctions and regulations still in place, ATR and Iranian officials said the contract with national carrier IranAir was signed in Tehran.

Iran initially announced the signing on Monday, but ATR said at the time elements were still being finalised."
