Iraq will place an order for 40 Boeing aircraft and for a smaller number from Canada's Bombardier, an Iraqi official said Tuesday.
"We are engaged with the government of Iraq and airline officials to assist them with their fleet-renewal plans," said Jim Condelles, a Boeing spokesman in Seattle.
Government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh told state-run television that a decision had been made to buy 40 new airplanes from Boeing that will be delivered within 10 years.
He did not provide details on the planned order and was not immediately available to comment further.
