Boeing, Airbus jet sales soar as Farnborough Airshow winds down

Boeing 747 8i

Airbus was set on Thursday to win a much-needed endorsement for the A330neo from its largest buyer as AirAsia prepared a long-distance finale to the Farnborough Airshow. It also announced a transaction for as many as four 777s with Dubai-based lessor Novus Aviation Capital. The first Boeing 787s are expected to arrive in 2021, the companies said in March. The commitments were for 93 aircraft in total, worth nearly USD$11 billion at list prices.

Seacons Trading has ordered a 737 MAX 7 from Boeing Business Jets (BBJ), the 20th MAX order for BBJ.

Boeing's fourth-day tally was swollen by a deal for 100 737 Max single-aisle jets from an unnamed buyer valued at $11.7 billion, and confirmation of a $2.8 billion contract for 10 787-9s from Hawaiian Airlines after the USA carrier had dropped an earlier A330neo purchase.

Two unnamed customers have placed orders for a combined 15 787-9 Dreamliners. Boeing reports that the order makes the Dreamliner the fastest-selling widebody aircraft in history. The order, if confirmed, would be worth USD$12.73 billion at current list prices.

Of these aircraft, 80 are the recently launched 737 MAX 10 - the largest version of Boeing's best-selling 737 range - and 20 are the benchmark 737 MAX 8 model, Reuters reported.

Muilenburg added: "We will continue to win in the marketplace thanks to our talented team, who innovate across our enterprise with One Boeing collaboration and deliver on our proven portfolio with relentless customer focus".

But the planemaker's hopes of securing an additional order for 100 A321neo from AirAsia appeared to have been dashed. The carrier was hinting at an order on Day 1 of Farnborough.

The total orders placed now tops 800.

VietJet signed an MOU for an additional 100 737 MAXs. The manufacturer calls it "an advanced analytics solution enabled my multi-source surveillance data".
