With 192.000m of static show, the Salon du Bourget confirmed it's leading place at the European exhibition level.

It was also the first time we could see representations of Australia, Lithuania, Tunisia, Lybia and Mexico at the Paris Air Show.

Due to the tendency of the market, continuousely improving, numerous orders were recorded. In this, Airbus was undoubted the leader on the scene as this European consortium received 425 confirmed orders. Astrium received an order from Ariane Espace regarding 35 Ariane 5 launchers. During the Salon du Bourget, Belgium also confirmed it's order regarding the NH-90.
