Russia’s Transaero Airlines has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Airbus to purchase 12 A330neos plus eight A330ceos.
The LOI, announced Thursday at the Farnborough Airshow, brought the number of commitments for the A330neo to 121. Airbus launched the re-engined A330 at Farnborough on Monday. Transaero becomes the first European airline to commit to the A330neo.
“The A330s will allow Transaero to continue the massive fleet modernization program and to boost its medium and long-haul domestic and international network,” Airbus said in a statement.
