The European plane maker announced the A320neo jet deal at the Paris Air Show on Monday, according to the Associated Press.
The transaction would be worth about $5.5 billion at list price, according to the report, though buyers are often able to strike discounts.
With skyrocketing fuel prices taking a chunk out of airlines bottom lines, the greener jet by Airbus has been a hot ticket item. The jet maker booked some 470 orders and commitments for the A320neo since its commercial launch in December. It booked orders for 142 aircraft worth $15 billion at list price on the first day of the Paris Air Show alone.
The plane doesnt become officially available until 2015.
