Airbus says China orders 42 A320, 18 A330 planes
PARIS (Reuters) - Europe's Airbus (EAD.PA) said an order for 60 aircraft announced by China earlier on Thursday included 18 A330 jets and 42 medium-haul A320-family aircraft.
The deal, signed in Beijing during a visit to China by French President Francois Hollande, is worth at least $7.7 billion based on list prices.
The order for A330 jets partially lifts a suspension resulting from a dispute with the European Union over airline emissions trading. Tensions appeared to ease when the EU put its scheme on hold for foreign airlines in November.
