TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese airline ANA Holdings Inc is set to order 18 Airbus SE A320neo jets, a source familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.

An announcement could be made later on Tuesday alongside the airline’s quarterly financial results, the source said on condition of anonymity, adding that a separate Boeing deal was also expected.

The Airbus deal would be worth around $1.99 billion based on the European manufacturer’s list prices.

An Airbus spokeswoman declined to comment.

Reuters earlier reported ANA was nearing a deal to purchase 30 Boeing Co 737 MAX jets worth $3.5 billion at list prices, according to two people familiar with the matter.
