The U.S. Department of the Treasury has granted permission to the world’s largest manufacturer of commercial jetliners and military aircraft to start sending its spare parts to Iran.

Boeing Co. said Friday that it would begin contacting Iranian officials, Reuters reported. The impetus for the move comes from the temporary sanctions relief the Obama administration and its allies offered the Middle Eastern nation as part of January’s nuclear deal.

The license, which Boeing applied for in February, does not allow the company to sell new aircraft to Iran, Reuters reported.
