Air France is reportedly on the point of ordering many aircraft from Airbus. Reuters news agency reports based on insiders that the impending deal concerns dozens of new new devices.

There have been rumors for some time that parent group Air France-KLM plans to announce new aircraft orders at the end of this month when half-year results are announced. Around that time there is also a board meeting again and a new decision could be made about the new aircraft.

According to Reuters, the company would like to have around 50 to 70 aircraft of the A220 type. They could replace the approximately 50 Air France A318s and A319s. In addition, the French probably go for the A320neo as a replacement for around 40 older A320 models.

Airbus declined to comment. An Air France-KLM spokeswoman told Reuters: “Air France is working on renewing its fleet over medium distances. No decision has yet been taken at this stage.”
