Jet Airways Ltd, India's biggest full service carrier by market share, is in talks to buy 75 single aisle aircraft with an option to purchase another 75, two people familiar with the plan said on Monday.
Jet Airways, part owned by Abu Dhabi's Etihad Airways, is likely to consider placing an order for either Boeing's 737 MAX planes or aircraft from Airbus SE's A320neo family, the sources said.
The airline continuously reviews the composition and deployment of its fleet in response to demand trends as well as other economic and market forces, Jet Airways said in an emailed statement.
An Airbus spokesman said the company did not comment on talks with customers that may or may not be happening. A Boeing spokeswoman said the company is in constant communication with the airlines in India about their current and future fleet needs but does not discuss specific conversations publicly.
