Commercial aircraft giants Airbus and Boeing has announced that interest has risen considerably amid increased passenger and cargo traffic at the Farnborough International Airshow, according to USA Today.

The companies confirmed firm orders and commitments for future purchases believed to be worth tens of billions of dollars.

Boeing are thought to have gained $79bn from orders which involved 528 jetliners, Bloomberg reported.

The US company has seen a substantial rise in orders in comparison with last year’s Paris Air Show with 673 total orders placed in contrast to the 571 of last year.

Boeing stated that it shows “resurgence in demand for freighters and strong order activity for 737 MAX and 787 passenger airplanes.”

The air show, which alternates with Paris every year, also saw Airbus report $62bn of sales and see an increase with 431 planes sold compared to 326 in France’s showpiece last year.

On Thursday (19 July), Airbus said it saw “strong market appetite for all our leading aircraft product families.”

However, the France-based company missed out on its targeted order from AirAsia Group due to the feeling that additional work was required on the A321neo narrow-body planes.
