Accredited to a heat-wave, security issues and restrictions upon exhibitors, the decrease in footfall made little impact as over US$150Billion of business was confirmed at the show.

Breaking down the US$150 billion of business deals, there were 897 orders and purchasing commitments for a catalogue value of US$115 billion for a total of 934 commercial aircraft. In the battle of the OEMs, it was Boeing that claimed orders worth US$75 billion whilst Airbus reported orders in the region of US$40billion.
