PARIS (Reuters) – Malaysia’s AirAsia has reached a deal with Airbus to restructure a large outstanding order for A320-family passenger jets, industry sources said on Friday.
Asia’s largest low-cost airline group is one of the European planemaker’s biggest customers but deliveries and progress payments have been disrupted by the coronavirus crisis.
The sources added that the AirAsia deal involved a new delivery schedule and price cuts for Airbus jets on order.
Airbus declined comment, while AirAsia did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
