MOSCOW, November 16 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's Ilyushin Finance plans to sign a preliminary contract with Iran Airtour at the Dubai Air Show on Monday to supply Iran with 30 Tu-204-100 aircraft, a source close to negotiations said on Friday.

The source said Ilyushin had already signed a contract to supply Iran with five Tu-204-100 airliners at the MAKS-2007 air show near Moscow in August, and was now planning to sign a preliminary contract with the Iran Airtour airline on November 19. The first batch of the Tu-204 medium-haul airliners designed to accommodate 210 passengers is expected to be delivered in 2009.

Ilyushin Finance deals with the financial and operational leasing of Russian-made civil aircraft, as well as providing consulting services. It has a 38% stake in Russia's 90% state-owned United Aircraft Corporation, which incorporates commercial and military aircraft makers such as Sukhoi, Ilyushin, and Tupolev, as well as companies involved in distribution, including Aviaexport.
