IAG International Airlines Group shareholders have approved two narrowbody orders recently placed by the holding: one for thirty-seven A320neo Family jets and the other for fifty B737 MAX with 100 options.

Including the newly confirmed orders, the Anglo-Spanish holding has firm orders for fifty-nine A320neo Family aircraft which will join the group's existing A320neo fleet comprising eighteen A320-200Ns and ten A321-200NX operated by British Airways, fourteen A320-200Ns operated by Iberia, twenty-five A320-200Ns operated by Vueling Airlines, and two A320-200Ns and seven A321-200NX(LR)s operated by Aer Lingus.

Although carriers generally retain flexibility with switching A320neo Family variants with larger orders, the ch-aviation fleets module shows that eight aircraft are currently allocated to Aer Lingus (two A320-200Ns and six A321-200NY(XLR)s), seventeen to Vueling (eight A320-200Ns and nine A321-200Ns), seventeen to Iberia (three A320-200Ns, six A321-200NX, and eight A321-200NY(XLR)s), and five to British Airways (two A320-200N and three A321-200NX).

The group has yet to take its first B737 MAX and has no prior commitments for the family.

IAG did not reveal on which of its AOCs it would place the B737 MAX.
