Its announcement came less than two hours after Airbus said it had reached a deal to sell 430 A320neo jetliners - worth roughly $50 billion at list prices - to Indigo Partners, which owns several low-priced airlines around the world.
"This significant commitment for 430 additional aircraft underscores our optimistic view of the growth potential of our family of low-priced airlines, as well as our confidence in the A320neo Family as a platform for that growth", said Indigo Partners Managing Partner Bill Franke.
The despite the mega-order, celebrations at Airbus would be muted as the aircraft maker has failed to attract a single buyer for the A380 in Dubai, having been snubbed by the model's biggest buyer Emirates.
The deal is the 'largest single commercial announcement ever for Airbus eclipsing the 2015 deal with unrelated Indian airline IndiGo for 250 A320neo aircraft listed at $26 billion. The order has a theoretical value of more than $1.3bn at list prices.
The airlines that use the aircraft will include Frontier Airlines, based in Denver, JetSMART of Chile, Volaris in Mexico and Wizz Air of Hungary.
Airbus's preliminary deal was expected to be worth up to $50 billion, but the price could come further down by the time both parties agree to finalize the nuts and bolts of the deal.
"Just to clarify: This is not an A380 press conference", joked John Leahy, Airbus' sales chief, as the start of the announcement.
The only major deal announced so far came Sunday, when long-haul carrier Emirates purchased 40 Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners in a $15.1 billion deal. "We look forward to the arrival of the new aircraft from 2019 in support of our future ambitions".
