Airbus secures its biggest deal valued at $50 bn for 430 planes

Later on Wednesday, Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of flydubai, signed an agreement between Boeing and flydubai for the 225 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, saying: "Today's order underlines the success of flydubai's founding vision in changing the way people travel across the region. I can see a place in transcontinental United States of America and Asia", he said, adding it would suit markets with congested airports but relatively low freight traffic, where airlines may not be willing to bet on a traditional twin-aisle jet sitting more than 250 people.

According to commentators, the deal marked a dramatic turnaround for Airbus, which had been lagging behind Boeing in the contest for orders so far this year and had a bad start to the 12 -16 November air show.

Also on Wednesday, Airbus won a $49.5 billion order from Indigo Partners' portfolio of low-priced airlines that include Frontier, Wizz Air, Volaris, and JetSmart.
