Boeing and Airbus fill order books in Farnborough

On the second day of the air show, the two manufacturers doubled down on ads.

US planemaker Boeing and European rival Airbus both announced new commercial orders on Tuesday, the second day of the Farnborough Air Show, which continues to be marked by a heat wave hitting the UK. Prudent on Monday to open the event, Airbus secured an order for 12 A220s from Delta, bringing the fleet of this small single aisle dedicated to its domestic routes to 107 for the American airline. This contract is worth nearly $1.1 billion according to the latest catalog price offered by Airbus – but never actually enforced. A220-300s with a capacity of 130 seats will be delivered from 2026.
