Malaysia Airlines invites Airbus, Boeing to bid for new planes - report
The New Straits Times said both aircraft manufacturers were expected to submit their proposals for a June deadline in an exercise aimed at replacing the national carrier's 39 ageing B737-300s.
"All I can say right now is that we have received the RFPs from MAS for our single-aisle aircraft about a week ago. I can't go into details on the matter," he was quoted as saying.
It said the upgrading exercise would cost Malaysia Airlines between 3.3-4.43 bln usd, and that the carrier wanted to take delivery of the first plane at the end of next year.
