Airbus, the world's second biggest maker of commercial aircraft, has won another order from Thomas Cook for two A320 planes, worth about $110 million based on list prices, as the German travel company begins flying under its own brand.
The planes will be delivered at the beginning of 2003. One will be operated by Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium and one by the British holiday carrier JMC. The A320s will serve holiday destinations around the Mediterranean.
The planes will be powered by CFM-56 engines, built by CFM International, a joint venture between The General Electric Company of the US and Snecma of France, Airbus said in an e-mailed statement to press.
