Turkey's Pegasus Airlines ordered 75 Airbus A320-family planes on Tuesday worth around USD$7.5 billion, Airbus said, marking the country's largest single aircraft order.

The Istanbul-based budget carrier placed a firm order for 58 fuel-saving A320neo aircraft and 17 A321neo jets. The aircraft have a combined list price of USD$7.5 billion.

The deal also includes options for a further 25 aircraft. If all options are exercised, the deal's value for all 100 aircraft could rise to USD$9.9 billion, based on official Airbus prices.
