FlyDubai, which operates an all-Boeing Co. (BA) fleet, said there's an "open race" between the U.S. manufacturer and European rival Airbus SAS (EAD) to supply it with 50 narrow-body aircraft worth $5 billion at list prices.

The discount carrier, which currently uses 30 Boeing 737s, is considering the re-engined Boeing 737 Max and Airbus A320neo models and plans to make a choice by November's Dubai Air Show at the latest, Chief Executive Officer Ghaith al-Ghaith said.

"We will choose what's best for us and what's best could be a new type," al-Ghaith said in an interview at the company's base in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. "Both aircraft appeal to us. The best decision is the one that costs us the least."
