LOT Polish Airlines SA is close to ordering as many as 60 Airbus SE A220 jets as it looks to swap out its aging Embraer SA planes, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Warsaw-based carrier is in advanced talks with the European planemaker and while the details may change, any deal could be announced as early as next week’s Farnborough International Airshow, the people said, asking not to be identified because the discussions are private.
