John Leahy, Airbus CEO, Customers, said: "The orders and commitments we've received at this record-breaking Farnborough for both the A330neo and A320neo families are together an unequivocally resounding endorsement for these most cost-efficient aircraft."

"For both our single-aisle and wide body categories, the high representation of lessors - widely regarded as the global barometer of the industry - is indicative of the long-term confidence in the capacity needs for sustainable growth for the airlines in the years ahead," added Leahy.
