NEW DELHI, May 9 (Reuters) - India's 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's low-cost unit.
A spokeswoman for Jet Airways, which recently agreed to sell
a 24 percent stake to Abu Dhabi's Etihad 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.
