Airbus vies for $5bn Singapore order

The European aircraft consortium Airbus Industrie is this week expecting to be vying with Boeing of the US for an order from Singapore Airlines worth at least $5bn, according to industry sources. The result of the tender for at least 33 new medium-sized, medium-range passenger aircraft for Asian routes, is to be announced tomorrow. Unlike previous orders, Singapore is thought likely to appoint a sole supplier, rather than splitting it between different aircraft makers.
