Airbus got an early jump on rival Boeing for 2018 with news Tuesday that low-cost Mexican airline Volaris has ordered 80 of its popular A320 planes for a total $9.3 billion. The planned purchase, which entails deliveries over the next eight years, comes after the European Aerospace giant overtook Boeing last year in terms of aircraft orders, booking 1,109 against the US company's 718. "The announcement of the investment in 80 Airbus aircraft by Volaris for a total $9.3 billion is very important," Mexican Communications Minister Gerardo Ruiz said, accompanied by Volaris executives.
