Jet Airways to buy more than 100 planes

Indian carrier Jet Airways might soon order more than 100 planes from Boeing and Airbus at the Paris Airshow. The news was revealed by a leading aviation consultancy.

A report from the Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation states that Jet has already confirmed an order for 50 737 MAX planes together with up to 10 777-300ERS from Boeing. The CAPA also said that it expects an additional order of 50 Airbus A320 neo planes which will be used for Jet’s low-cost unit.

Jet Airways recently agreed to sell 24 percent stake to Abu Dhabi’s Etihad in a deal worth $380 million. The spokesperson for Jet Airways was not immediately available for comment. For many months there has been a speculation regarding an order of 100 planes by Jet Airways, a deal worth some $10 billion at list prices.

But the report still remains unconfirmed. Moreover, in recent times Boeing was gripped with a controversy due to its Dreamliner 787 aircrafts which had to face a global grounding. Later the company offered a lithium ion battery replacement, after which airlines across the globe are bringing their aircrafts in to work.
