Following the conclusion of the second day of the Farnborough International Airshow (FIA), the event’s organisers have reported that more than 530 aircraft have been ordered on Tuesday, equating to a further $51.4bn in deals.
Coupled with the sizeable number of engine and engine service agreements signed on Monday, the total amount of business conducted in the first two days of this year’s FIA has passed $98bn. Compared to the performance of the first two days of the 2016 Farnborough International Airshow, this figure is up by $23bn.
Commenting on the success of the show thus far, Amanda Stainer, Farnborough International Commercial Director says: “I am delighted that the global aerospace industry use the Farnborough International Airshow as the preeminent platform for doing business and signing major deals.
“The future starts at Farnborough; our exhibition halls are full of innovation that will shape how we fly, enabling us to go further, faster and with less environmental impact.”
