  • Airbus in $40bn deal to sell 430 A320s to USA firm

Private equity firm Indigo Partners, which has set up ultra-low cost airlines around the world, made the massive order Wednesday at the Dubai Air Show for Airbus' single-aisle A320neo family airliners.

The Indigo deal would more than double Airbus's existing order book for the year, which stood at about 290 aircraft as of October 31.

The airline had announced orders for 288 planes as of the end of October. To put it in perspective, a single airline with 430 planes would rank among the 10 largest carriers on the planet.

The deal represents the largest single order for Airbus planes by volume and comprises 273 A320neos and 157 A321neos, worth a combined $49.5 billion at list prices.

Under the deal on Wednesday, Airbus will sell its bestselling upgraded single-aisle jets to Indigo Partners' low-priced carriers that include Wizz Air (Hungary), Frontier Airlines (United States), JetSMART (Chile) and Volaris (Mexico), to boost their fleets.
