It comes as rival Boeing has grounded all of its 737 Max jets after two fatal crashes.

The deal is worth an estimated 30bn euros ($34bn; £26bn), according to source.

The deal will likely be a blow for Boeing, under pressure after two fatal crashes involving its 737 Max 8 jets in five months.

Many countries banned the aircraft from their airspace after an Ethiopian Airlines crash earlier this month. Boeing later grounded its 737 Max fleet as investigations into the cause of the disaster continue.
