Turkish Airlines announced on Friday an order for up to 117 Airbus A320 aircraft, a deal valued at $9.3 billion at list prices.

The order, described as the carrier’s largest consists of 57 of Airbus A320 new engine option family aircraft and 25 of the existing A320 jets. Turkish Airlines also has options for an additional 35 of the new engine option aircraft.
