Flag carrier Garuda Indonesia is considering buying 20 Airbus A320 aircraft, worth about 1.3 billion dollars, airline director Ari Sapari said Thursday.
"It is still just a discussion, we still need some evaluation," Sapari told AFP, adding that negotiations with Airbus had not yet begun.
He said that the purchase of the 20 jets would be "in line with Garuda's plan to develop our operations."
Late last year, Garuda signed a contract to purchase 25 Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft, which are expected to be delivered in stages from May 2009 to February 2012. The airline is also awaiting delivery of three Airbus A330-300s, part of nine aircraft under order.
A bit from everything for Garuda it seems... interesting that the three outstanding A330-300s will be delivered as well.
