June 23, 2017 -- Boeing has topped Airbus in the air show order haul for the first time since 2012, driven by 766 new orders and commitments valued at $44.5 billion while European rival Airbus booked 331 potential sales worth $17.7bn.

The biggest buyer at the Paris show was General Electric Co.’s GE Capital Aviation Service (GECAS), which ordered 100 Airbus planes valued at $10.8 billion. GECAS also converted 20 Boeing options to the Max 10 from Max 8 and MAX 9 versions. In total Boeing secured 336 MAX 10 commitments, including around 200 conversions from other MAX versions.

Canada’s Bombardier Inc. announced Tuesday it had secured a letter of intent from India’s Spicejet for 50 Q400 turboprop aircraft worth up to $1.7bn. The order comes a day after the Montreal-based company signed deals with Philippine Airlines for seven Q400s and Ethiopian Airlines for five Q400s, bringing its two-day sales to $2.1bn.

Brazilian planemaker Embraer booked orders for 48 planes in deals totalling about $1.6bn, including orders for 20 of its new fly-by-wire E195-E2 airliners. France’s ATR recorded orders for 15 aircraft worth around $300m.

Embraer’s Eagle: Embraer’s E195-E2 aircraft type has been named “The Profit Hunter” and carries the face of an eagle. Designed by an artist working in Embraer’s paint shop, the decal was spray painted over 20 nights, from midnight to dawn.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
