A firm order induces first payments while a memorandum of understanding marks the general agreement of the two parties on the principle of the sale, the details of which have yet to be clarified.

In November, the European aircraft manufacturer had already accumulated orders at the Dubai air show, the first to scale since the pandemic.

Airbus counted at the end of November more than 6,250 single-aisle aircraft (A320 and A220 families) to be delivered, while Boeing had a little less than 3,400 737 type aircraft in its order book.

Over the first eleven months of the year, the European aircraft manufacturer recorded 610 gross orders (368 net taking into account cancellations and modifications of orders).
