DUBAI/PARIS (Reuters) – Airbus <AIR.PA> is likely to win an order for at least 100 jets from Air Arabia <AIRA.DU>, with an announcement possibly as soon as the Dubai Airshow next week, two sources told Reuters.

Air Arabia, which has held talks with both Airbus and Boeing <BA.N>, was expected to select the European planemaker, two sources said.
