150 jets set for China

CHINA is in talks to buy at least 150 Airbus passenger jets, potentially worth $20bn (€14.4bn), when Xi Jinping pays his first visit to Europe as president at the end of this month.

In a broad-ranging deal, China is expected to purchase more A330 passenger jets as talks advance to open Airbus's second major factory in the country.
