AirAsia to extend Airbus deal to 300 aircraft

AirAsia will reportedly extend a deal with Airbus for its new A320neo jets to 300, which takes the original list price of the contract to USD27 billion (Reuters, 06-Jul-2011). The original deal was signed at the Jun-2011 Paris Air Show. The additional 100 aircraft will also carry CFM International engines. The carrier will reportedly receive a discount for the entire order, but no further details have been specified.
