"The next-step technology aircraft will enable us to continue to lower our operating costs as we drive towards our goal of Wizz Air being the lowest fare and lowest unit cost airline in Europe".

"An order for 430 aircraft is remarkable, but it's particularly gratifying to all of us at Airbus when it comes from a group of airline professionals who know our products as well as the folks at Indigo Partners do".

"We've done a little research and we don't ‎think there's been a larger order ever", Franke said at the press conference in Dubai on Wednesday. Based on the list price of the A320neo, Airbus's best-selling single-aisle jet, the purchase would be worth at least $46.6 billion before customary discounts if Indigo exercises all of its rights to the aircraft.

The order includes A320neos and A321neos, the source said.

Boeing and flydubai declined to comment.

The deal will be considered a triumph for Airbus amid continued speculation as to whether it would secure an order from Dubai carrier Emirates for additional A380s at this week's Dubai Airshow.

This year, however, Airbus's share of the two giants' combined order tally has dropped to 35 percent as a rejuvenated Boeing management made advances in Singapore and elsewhere and Airbus's morale was hampered by compliance investigations.

"I think both sides will take stock and see if something can be agreed later this year", an industry source told Reuters.
