PARIS (Reuters) – Malaysia’s AirAsia has reached a deal with Airbus for a large outstanding order for A320-family passenger jets, industry sources said on Friday.
Asia’s largest low-cost airline group is one of the European planemaker’s biggest customers but deliveries and progress payments have been disrupted by the coronavirus crisis.
According to sources, the AirAsia agreement included a revised delivery schedule as well as price reductions for Airbus planes ordered.
Airbus refused to comment while AirAsia didn’t immediately respond to a request.
