The final day of the Paris Air Show 2019 saw more orders for the hugely successful Airbus A321XLR with Saudi budget carrier Flynas ordering of the type, albeit tentatively at the moment.

Flynas also said that they were converting orders for 10 A320neos to the larger A321neo.

This makes the total number of airlines who are buying the A321XLR, which only launched 4 days ago, to 11.

Nordic Air Capital also gave the European air-framer a last day boost when it signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to buy 20 Airbus A220’s.

Overall though, the Paris Air Show 2019 has been quieter than previous years, in fact its had the lowest orders since Farnborough 2016.

That is indicative of the current economic climate and also the current situation of US air-framer Boeing and its problems with a range of aircraft including the 737 Max.

Hopefully things will improve for Farnborough 2020, we’ll see you there.
