During the 2016 Farnborough Air Show, Airbus won $35 billion worth of business for a total of 279 aircraft, covering by single-aisle and widebody aircraft families.

The deals comprise firm orders for 197 aircraft worth $26.3 billion and commitments for 82 aircraft worth $8.7 billion. Sales and commitments at Farnborough of the A320 Family were strong, with business accounting for a total of 269 aircraft worth $31.3 billion. This total comprises 187 firm orders worth $22.6 billion, and commitments (eg. MoUs) for 82 aircraft worth 8.7 billion. Notably the larger A321neo model took a lion's share of the single-aisle announcements - with firm selections from three airlines for 140 aircraft, reflecting the trend for airlines to upsize to larger single-aisle aircraft. All this is great news for Hamburg, too, as the city is the single-aisle stronghold for Airbus: 50% of all A320 family aircraft are being assembled at the Finkenwerder site. In the widebody segment Airbus won firm orders for 10 aircraft worth $3.4 billion comprising two A330-300s and eight A350-1000s.
