Jet Airways is expected to order more than 100 planes from Boeing Co and Airbus at the Paris Airshow next month,a leading aviation consultancy said. The Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA) said in a report it understood Jet has already confirmed an order for 50 737-MAX planes together with up to 10 777-300ERS from Boeing.
CAPA said it expected a further order of 50 Airbus A320neo planes to be used by Jet Airways’s low-cost unit.
A spokeswoman for Jet Airways,which recently agreed to sell a 24 percent stake to Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways in a $380 million deal,was not immediately available for a comment.
There has been speculation for months of a 100-plane order by Jet,but so far the deal,which would be worth some $10 billion at list prices,remains unconfirmed.
