The Deputy of Iranian Defense Ministry for Industry and Research said the country plans to design a new generation of "Iran 140" aircraft with the enlarged capacity for 120 individuals.
"There are few countries in the world which hold the technology of building aircrafts, Iran has joined the countries as it has managed to present its "Iran 140 plane," Mohammad Eslami told ISNA.
"Iran-140 aircraft carries passengers in some flight lines and that Iran is building some more Iran-140 aircrafts," he added.
He continued, "Iran-140 belongs to the new generation of aircrafts built after 2000. Iran plans to lessen noises in the aircraft cabin by 10 decibel."
He said currently-built "Iran-140" aircrafts can accommodate 52 individuals, but the country plans to raise the number to 120.
