Ireland's Aer Lingus buys four more aircraft from Airbus

The Irish airline Aer Lingus announced a deal Wednesday to buy four more aircraft from European maker Airbus.
Aer Lingus said the A320-200 aircraft would be delivered by 2011, when the airline plans to have an all-Airbus fleet of 39 short-haul jets.
Chief Executive Dermot Mannion called the new planes "key to our growth ambitions."
Aer Lingus said it received a confidential discount off the total list price of US$226.8 million (euro151.2 million).
Aer Lingus faces stiff competition from its Dublin-based rival, Ryanair, the biggest no-frills airline in Europe. Ryanair operates a fleet of 120 Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
