Armenian flag carrier Armavia appears to have opted for Airbus and Boeing narrowbodies to increase its fleet capacity.

A spokeswoman for the carrier says it is considering acquring three aircraft shortly, after representatives of the Yerevan-based operator held talks with both airframers during the Farnborough air show.

"Afterwards, our management made a decision to place orders for two 737-700s or -800s and an A320," she says. "This is in line with our policy of expanding fleet by acquring the most efficient modern aircraft types."

Since April 2011, Armavia has operated a Sukhoi Superjet 100 throughout its route network. But the airline has yet to take delivery of a second on order. The spokeswoman declines to specify whether the carrier intends to take the second of the type or firm its options for another two Superjets.
