Farnborough hailed a success

Posted on 22 Jul 2008 by The Manufacturer

This year’s Farnborough Airshow has proved a success despite pessimistic predictions, with list price orders for Boeing and Airbus alone reaching a massive $50 billion.

“The Farnborough Airshow has once again been the ideal location to show off UK-based manufacturing and engineering excellence in both the aerospace and defence sectors. Orders have been strong and have demonstrated that there is still life in the civil air transport market despite the current global economic situation. Interest in defence has also been at its usual high levels,” said SBAC chief executive Ian Godden.
