Iraq signs $5bn deal for 46 aircraft

State-run Iraqi Airways has agreed to buy 40 new aircraft from US plane maker Boeing and six from Canada's Bombardier in a deal worth up to $5bn, reported Reuters. An earlier government statement had said Iraq would buy the 40 Boeing jets and had agreed an option for 10 more. The Boeing jets are due for delivery in 2015, and the Canadian aircraft are due this year and in 2009, according to Bangeen Riqani, deputy minister of transport. No details on the type of aircraft were immediately available.
