The award recognises the most active, influential and engaged social media proponent from the show's exhibitors.
BoeingAirplanes posted a total of 94 tweets during the first four days of the show (19-22 June) and received an impressive 469 retweets of their Paris announcements.
It helped swell their followers by over 650 up to a total of 28,745.
The Award was calculated by measuring the number of tweets from each twitter account using the Paris Air Show hashtag #pas11, the number of retweets by the respective followers, and the growth in those following the account.
Twitter powerhouse and Flightglobal journalist Jon Ostrower said of Boeing's achievement: "The award is recognition for Boeing's commitment to bringing together those who bring aerospace to life and those who follow with passion and enthusiasm around the world."
Notable mentions in the Power Tweeter award go to Airbus - generated the highest percentage of retweets per tweet, GEAviation - who clocked up an impressive 177 #pas11 tweets, and CFM_Engines, who pulled in a massive 4,284 new followers mainly through their innovative sponsorship of the #pas11 hashtag.
This year's Paris Air Show has seen an unprecedented amount of social media activity, with many exhibitors embracing their customers through the new medium.
