  • BRITAIN-AIRSHOW

Airbus announced orders for commercial airliners worth up to USD$27 billion on the first day of the UK's Farnborough Airshow, with the A320neo family and A350 featuring prominently.

Farnborough and the Paris Air Show account for a quarter of annual industry orders.

On the wide-body front, Airbus signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Taiwanese start up StarLux Airlines for 17 A350s - 12 A350-1000s and five A350-900s.

Speaking about the Boeing deal Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker said he was "delighted to be further enhancing our cargo fleet and adding five Boeing 777 Freighter aircraft", adding "In the past 15 years, Qatar Airways Cargo has grown steadily and globally, becoming the third largest in the world".

Trade tensions between the United States and both China and Europe, disputes over the consequences of Britain's exit from the European Union and an increase in global protectionist rhetoric have barely dented a prolonged industry boom.

"Our worst case scenario is genuinely - and it is not alarmist or scare mongering - that aircraft will not fly", said Farnborough International chairman Paul Everitt, who is also head of aerospace, defence and space trade body ADS.

Mrs May announced £343 million in additional research and development funding, including investment in new "cleaner and greener" electric aircraft technology.

Featuring the widest single aisle cabin in the sky, the efficient A320neo Family incorporates the very latest technologies including new generation engines and Sharklets, which together deliver more than 15 percent fuel and Carbon dioxide savings from day one and 20 percent by 2020 as well as 50 percent noise reduction.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said Britain had "a vision for developing next generation systems of weapons".

He said the project would be carried out by a "ground-breaking partnership".

"This is a future fighter. a virtual cockpit, either manned or unmanned", Williamson said.
