Spanish airline Air Europa has ordered three more Boeing 737-800 planes to add to its existing fleet of 25, Boeing said in a statement on Tuesday.
The new order is worth USD$195 million at the planes' book price, it said. Deliveries start in 2006.
Air Europa has an earlier order for two of the planes for delivery in 2005.
Last week, privately owned Air Europa became a potential launch customer for Airbus's new A350 plane when it signed a memorandum of understanding for 10 A350-800s with options on another two. The 245 seat Airbus aircraft has a list price of USD$153 million and is the carrier's first non-Boeing order.
Air Europa, which is owned by Globalia and has a partnership with Air France among others, is expanding rapidly in Europe and Latin America.
