Airbus reveals largest-ever order 

Airbus announced at the Dubai Airshow that Indigo Partners has placed the largest-ever order for 430 aircraft, totalling $49.5 billion at list price. Indigo Partners, which owns Frontier Airlines in the US, Wizz Air in Europe, Jetsmart in Chile and Volaris in Mexico, has placed an order for 273 A320neos and 157 A321neos.

Airbus says when added to the firm’s previous A320 orders for 427 planes, the new agreement makes Indigo Partners one of the largest customers by order number in the world for the Airbus single-aisle aircraft.

This is welcome news for Airbus as it was widely expected that Emirates were to order further A380 which would have secured production on the aircraft for a number of years, however it appears the deal has fallen through.
