SINGAPORE, July 11 (Reuters) - Indian airline Vistara on Wednesday said it had placed firm orders for 13 Airbus SE A320neos and six Boeing Co 787 jets valued at $3.1 billion at list prices.

The carrier, a joint venture between India’s Tata Sons Ltd and Singapore Airlines Ltd, said it also had purchase rights over 5 more 787-9s, options over 7 more A320neos and would procure another 37 A320neos from leasing companies.
