Dubai Air Show
The Dubai Airshow will continue to be the top international aviation event for commercial airplanes market, as the latest edition of Paris Air Show fails to outbeat its $210bn record deals announced in 2013.
The Paris Air Show concluded yesterday, witnessing some major deals, but, both lead aircraft manufacturers, the Airbus and Boeing, bagged orders an commitments worth $107.2bn at the largest aviation gathering in Paris.
The forthcoming Dubai Airshow, due to be held from 8th to 12th November will generate commercial planes orders worth more than $100bn from UAE-based companies, and will exceed the Paris Air Show’s total announcement this year.
With the 2015 edition of Dubai Airshow just five months away, it is assumed that the event may beat the assumption that this year’s event may out-beat this year’s Paris Air Show, said Strategic Aero Research Chief Analyst, Saj Ahmed.
He further said Emirates Airline is likely to place a major airplane order, and 787-10 would be the star of the show. Lower weight of the aircraft, better fuel efficiency and easy availability are some of the reasons that Emirates is getting attracted to 787-10 for its mid-long haul flight needs.
Another Aviation analyst Air Arabia is yet to decide for its next order, whether to purchase 737 Max family, or stick to A32Oneo family. He said that Dubai Airshow may just be the apt place and time to announce the order for Sharjah-based low-cost carrier.
The Dubai Airshow 2013 had the single biggest dollar value of orders at an industrial launch for an airplance. The launch of 777X at the 2013 Dubai Airshow topped $95bn. This figure by itself is impossible to beat until a new wide-body jet is launched, he said.
At Dubai Airshow, the Qatar Airwasy, Emirates, Etihad Airways and Lufthansa made the 777x, the largest product launch in commercial jetliner history by value. The organizers, F&E Aerospace and exhibitors of the biennial Dubai Airshow celebrated the historic event, held at the new Dubai World Central aerotropolis for the first time in 2013.
