AIRSHOW-Airbus nears deal to sell around 400 jets to Indigo Partners - sources

DUBAI, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Airbus SE is close to agreeing a blockbuster order worth more than $40 billion at list prices to sell around 400 aircraft to U.S.-based investment fund Indigo Partners, founded by low-cost airline pioneer Bill Franke, two sources said.

The sources, who were familiar with the matter, said the deal could be unveiled at the Dubai Airshow later on Wednesday in a huge comeback for the European planemaker, which had so far been upstaged by rival Boeing Co at the airshow and in the annual aircraft orders race.
