There were collective order commitment announcements of over 1,000 during this year’s Farnborough air show, and more than 200 option commitments,
Much of the activity came from aircraft lessors. The airframers announced 576 order and option commitments from a dozen lessors during the show.While, as with airlines, some of these confirm earlier commitments and others are still be finalised, it is clear the aircraft lessors continue to have an appetite for ordering aircraft.
Getting on for half of these commitments, 261, were for the Airbus A320neo. Another 20 were for Boeing's 737 Max and Airbus picked up 55 order MoUs from lessors for the re-engined A330 it launched at start of the show.
