In a speech officially opening the 2018 Farnborough International Airshow, she will tell an audience of aviation industry executives and United Kingdom business leaders that she wants to build on Britain's global reputation and make the most of future opportunities.

Boeing noted that "a portion of the order was previously unidentified on Boeing's Orders & Deliveries website".

The Farnborough Airshow is the industry's biggest event in 2018.

Rising oil prices and interest rates, trade tensions and uncertainty over Britain's departure from the European Union all pose a risk to an eight-year boom in civil aviation, which has boosted industry order books and share prices. It alternates with the Paris Airshow and collectively they account for more than a quarter of industry order intake each year.

Organisers warn that aircraft could stop flying if British Prime Minister Theresa May fails to clinch an adequate Brexit deal with Brussels.

"While DHL Express in the past has chiefly been leasing aircraft to operate its global network ... the purchase of fully owned freighter aircraft will improve the cost position of the DHL Express division going forward", DHL said.

Goshawk Aviation Limited, the 50/50 joint venture between Hong Kong-based conglomerate NWS Holdings Limited and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises Limited, placed a firm order for 20 A320neo.

This will also be the first appearance for two new partnerships for Airbus and Boeing.

She also announced that a new Aerospace Sector Deal will be created to further support the UK's status as a world leader in aerospace, and announced the launch of the Combat Air Strategy. He said Boeing is looking to build 900 aircraft per year from 2020 onwards.

"There are explanations as to why this wave is now coming".

Airbus announced a mix of orders - some firm, some promised - that would be worth tens of billions of dollars at list prices. "I think this is behind us now".
