By June 20 at the 2013 Paris Air Show, Boeing has won orders and commitments for 442 commercial aircraft in transactions which the manufacturer values at more than $66 billion at list prices.
At the Paris Air Show 2013, Boeing launched its newest commercial-jet model, the 787-10 Dreamliner, with orders and commitments for 102 aircraft from five customers.
Additionally, Boeing has announced several massive orders for its commercial jets, the largest of which was the finalizing of a previously announced commitment by Ryanair for 175 Boeing 737-800 single-aisle jets in a deal which Boeing values at $15.6 billion at list prices.
Ryanair is highly unlikely to be paying anywhere near this much for the aircraft.
Customers to date for the Boeing 787-10 include Air Lease Corporation, with a commitment for 30 as well as a commitment for three more Boeing 787-9s, valued in total at $9.4 billion; GE Capital Aviation Services, with a commitment for 10 valued at $2.9 billion; International Airlines Group/British Airways, whose commitment for 12 is valued at $3.5 billion; Singapore Airlines, which placed a firm order for 30, valued at $8.7 billion; and United Airlines, which placed a firm order for 20, valued at $5.8 billion.
According to Boeing, the 787-10 will cover more than 90 per cent of the world’s twin-aisle routes and will offer seating for 300 to 330 passengers. Design of the 787-10 has already started at Boeing and international partners will be involved in detailed design in the months ahead, with first delivery targeted for 2018.
Boeing’s other widebody jets also saw sales activity at the Paris Air Show. Qatar Airways was revealed as the previously unidentified firm-order customer for two Boeing 777-300ER jets and the airline also announced a new commitment at the show for seven more 777-300ERs. Boeing put a total list-price value of $2.8 billion on the nine aircraft.
Korean Air, meanwhile, announced a commitment for five Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental passenger aircraft and six 777-300ERs, the manufacturer valuing the 11 aircraft at $3.6 billion in total.
Another major deal announced by Boeing at the Paris Air Show was a commitment from TUI Travel PLC for 60 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, which the manufacturer values at $6.1 billion at list prices.
TUI Travel, which on its own initiative announced the commitment well before the show began, also revealed it had acquired purchase rights on 90 more 737 MAX jets and subsequently indicated it expects to exercise all of them in the future.
Japan’s Skymark Airlines announced a commitment for four Boeing 737 MAX 8 jets at the show, Boeing valuing the commitment at $400 million.
Leasing company CIT Aerospace, meanwhile, placed a firm order for 30 737 MAX 8s, a deal Boeing values at $3 billion at list prices.
Czech Republic-based airline Travel Service announced a commitment for three 737 MAX 8s, which Boeing values at $301 million.
At the show Boeing revealed Oman Air as the previously unidentified firm-order customer for five Boeing 737-900ER aircraft, valued at $473 million in total by the manufacturer.
On June 20, additional firm orders for 20 Boeing 737NGs and 20 737 MAX jets from unidentified customer(s) were posted on Boeing’s Orders & Deliveries website, in deals which Boeing values at $3.8 billion at list prices.
Boeing’s net orders (the total number of aircraft ordered minus order cancellations) for 2013 currently stand at 692 aircraft.
