Aircraft deals at Paris Air Show

Graphic News

June 21, 2019 -- Airbus signed off the Paris Air Show with deals for 363 commercial planes, worth around $35 billion at list prices, including 206 orders for the new A321XLR narrow-body aircraft.

Speaking at a final press conference, Airbus sales chief Christian Scherer vowed to challenge a surprise order for 200 Boeing 737 Max aircraft by its chief U.S. rival.

Scherer said that Airbus never received a request for proposals from IAG, the owner of British Airways, a process that formally launches bidding for most major aircraft contracts.

IAG is currently an Airbus-only narrow-body customer and has said it plans to use the Max planes -- now grounded following two fatal crashes -- for its discount and leisure divisions, including British Airways, Vueling and Level.

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 @
