An Airbus spokesperson said on Monday the planemaker and Turkish Airlines had reached an agreement in principle for a “significant commercial aircraft order”.
The spokesperson said the agreement was being ratified and would be communicated in the “coming days”.
Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news agency earlier reported Turkish Airlines on Saturday had held talks with Airbus to discuss a potential order for 355 new jets.
During the meeting, which took place in Istanbul, officials from Turkish Airlines discussed buying 75 wide-body A350-900 and 15 wide-body A350-1000 aircraft as well as 250 narrow-body A321neo aircraft and five A350F cargo aircraft, in addition to 10 A350-900s for which terms have already been agreed.
