News release: At the close of the Farnborough International Airshow 5-day trade exhibition, organisers confirmed that the show had recorded orders and options to the value of US$123.9 billion defying industry expectations. Farnborough International’s internal order tracker recorded a total of 856 aircraft valued at US$93.98, 1407 engines valued at US$22.7 billion and a variety of other business deals totalling £7.2 billion. Speaking at the close week, Farnborough International Chief Executive, Shaun Ormrod said, “The extreme weather bought us some additional challenges this week, but it doesn’t seem to have stopped our exhibitors and visitors doing business. The halls have been busy all week, which is really encouraging for the supply chain industry. With these orders adding to the already large backlog, its looks like the aerospace industry is going to be busy for some years to come.” Commercial Director, Amanda Stainer further added, “It’s been a really successful show for our exhibitors. Our marketing suite has been busy and we have already taken a considerable about of re-bookings for the 2018 show. The Meet-the-Buyer programme has gone well with over 1700 meetings taking place as has the military delegations and civil and commercial delegations programme which as needs representation from over 60 countries.
