Visitor numbers down but Paris Air Show was 'good vintage'

Visitor numbers down but Paris Air Show was 'good vintage'This year’s Paris Air Show at Le Bourget has proved a “good vintage” with orders up 13 percent though fewer visitors showed up, organisers said as the event wound down Sunday. Tight security owing to an ongoing state of emergency in the wake of several terror attacks in France in the past 18 months saw the number of visitors slide compared with the last edition two years ago — the event alternates with Farnborough in England. Boeing managed to outpace its rival thanks to its new 737 MAX 10 airliner, taking in a total of 571 orders and commitments, with the plane aimed at the biggest part of the commercial airline market — single-aisle aircraft for medium-range flights.
