Vueling is considering Bombardier's offering of the CSeries specifically in the 160-seat configuration, according to chief executive Alex Cruz.
Last week the Spanish low cost carrier postponed a fleet renewal decision by six weeks to allow assessment of Bombardier's CSeries.
"We were not expecting to have a long conversation with Bombardier but they responded well. They are offering the CS300 with 160 seats, which could suit us," Cruz said at the International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading conference in Rome today.
Vueling is looking to replace its Airbus A320 aircraft fleet in the second part of this decade. Cruz admits that initially Vueling had been prepared to only assess mainline narrowbodies - both current and re-engined versions - from Airbus and Boeing.
"They [Bombardier] delivered a proposition that is suitable to be considered by us and hopefully we will make a decision on our fleet renewal over the coming months," he adds.
The carrier is looking at new aircraft fitted with business and economy classes, according to him.
