Paris Air Show: Qatar and others

Subscription required. Introduction June 1, 2015, c. Leeham Co. It could be called the Qatar Airways Air Show. Qatar Airways plans to have five airliners on display at the Paris Air Show in two weeks: the Airbus A319, A320, A350, A380 and the Boeing 787. The carrier hasn't announced whether it will provide an aerial display as it has at previous air shows, but Qatar may well have more airliners there than Airbus or Boeing. As for manufacturers other than Airbus and Boeing, we don't expect anything of consequence from these. Summary
  • Irkut, COMAC, Mitsubishi, Sukoi and ATR are other major aircraft producers that will be at the Paris Air Show.
  • Engine makers CFM International, GE Aviation, Rolls-Royce, Pratt & Whitney and Engine Alliance will also be there.
  • An update on Airbus expectations.
