Mexican airline Interjet has signed a contract with European aircraft maker Airbus to buy 40 A320 planes for $3.2 billion, the airline said Monday.
"Last Friday we celebrated a contract to buy 40 A320 planes from Airbus, the new model that reduces fuel costs by 15 percent," Interjet chairman Miguel Aleman said at a business summit in the central city of Queretaro.
Interjet is a company with 100 percent Mexican capital that mainly flies within Mexico but has some routes to the United States, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Cuba.
