Greek airline Aegean picks Airbus for $5 bln order of 42 planes

ATHENS, March 28 (Reuters) - Aegean Airlines will order 42 aircraft worth $5 billion (4.04 billion euros) from Airbus as Greece’s largest carrier renews its fleet of single-aisle planes, executives said on Wednesday.

Seeking to reduce maintenance costs, Aegean, a member of the Star Alliance airline group, had been weighing its options between the Airbus A320neo and Boeing’s 737 MAX. (1 euro = $1.2387) (Reporting by George Georgiopoulos; editing by Jason Neely)
