Airbus to sell 430 jets to airline owner Indigo Partners in a deal worth $49.5bn



Airbus is to sell 430 jets to airline owner Indigo Partners in a deal worth $49.5bn (£38bn) - described as the manufacturer's largest ever.
 
The European aircraft maker - which employs about 6,000 people at its wing assembly plant in Broughton, north Wales - announced at the Dubai air show that it had signed a memorandum of understanding for the purchase.
 
 
It includes 273 A320neo and 157 A321neo jets that will be used by four airlines controlled by Indigo - US-based Frontier Airlines, Chile's JetSMART, Volaris of Mexico and WizzAir of Hungary.


The $49.5bn headline price of the deal reflects the list value of the individual aircraft - often negotiated lower in large transactions - and the actual price to be paid was not revealed.
