Held bi-annually, the event showcases the latest developments in military, general and commercial aviation, in addition to providing a valuable platform for aircraft manufacturers and service providers to do business. Attendees can explore the extensive exhibition arena, view the hottest new aircraft in the static display, and enjoy a series of breathtaking aerial demonstrations.

The penultimate day of the Dubai Airshow saw two enormous aircraft purchase orders for both Airbus and Boeing, in one of the most exciting days in recent aviation business history.

Airbus revealed its largest single announcement ever this morning – a US$49.5 billion deal with Indigo Partners to purchase 430 aircraft in its A320neo family, described as Airbus’ largest ever single announcement.

Meanwhile Boeing inked a US$27 billion deal with carrier flydubai for 225 aircraft in its 737 MAX family, the largest-ever single-aisle jet order – by number of airplanes and total value – from a Middle East carrier.

With the Airbus order, Indigo Partners, a US-based private equity fund, has doubled its existing order of 427 A320 family aircraft. The fund owns four ultra low cost airlines, amongst which the new fleet will be shared as follows: Wizz Air (Hungary) 72 A320neo, 74 A321neo; Frontier Airlines (USA) 100 A320neo, 34 A321neo; JetSMART (Chile) 56 A320neo, 14 A321neo, and Volaris (Mexico) 46 A320neo, 34 A321neo.

Bill Franke, Managing Partner of Indigo Partners, and a man widely credited with creating the ultra low cost carrier sector, said: “This underscores our optimistic view of the growth potential of our family of low-cost airlines, as well as our confidence in the A320neo Family as a platform for that growth.”

The mammoth deal puts Indigo Partners among the biggest customers by order number for Airbus single-aisle aircraft.

John Leahy, COO, Customer, Airbus Commercial Aircraft, described the deal as ‘remarkable, and thanked his sales team. He said: “It’s gratifying that [this order] comes from a group of airline professionals who know our products as well as the folks at Indigo Partners do. We are proud to augment [Indigo Partner’s] airline fleets in Latin America, North America and Europe with the single-aisle aircraft that offers the lowest operating costs, longest range and most spacious cabin. ”

Increasing demand for air travel will push jetliner sales to more than 34,000 worldwide in the next 20 years, according to Airbus’s 2017 global market forecast. Almost three-quarters of that will be single-aisle models, the company said.

Most of the aircraft included in the Indigo Partners order will be delivered after 2021, with precise engine details as yet undecided.

Later on Wednesday, November 15, His Highness 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. In under a decade, flydubai has extended its network to 97 destinations in 44 countries, transporting more than 44 million passengers. We look forward to the arrival of the new aircraft from 2019 in support of our future ambitions.”

The new Boeing order marks the third order placed by the airline with the US manufacturer in its eight-year history, following on from others placed in 2008 and 2013. The new crop of aircraft will be added to the flydubai fleet from as soon as 2019.

The agreement includes a commitment for 175 MAX airplanes, and purchase rights for 50 additional MAXs. More than 50 of the first 175 airplanes will be 737 MAX 10s, launched earlier this year, and said to have the lowest seat-mile cost of any single-aisle airplane. The rest of the order comprises MAX 8 and MAX 9 aircraft.

Korean Air Rolls Out Next-Generation Business Class: ‘Prestige Suites 2.0’

Korean Air has introduced its latest business class offering, the Prestige Suites 2.0, set to make its debut aboard the airline’s new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner fleet.

This new product marks a significant upgrade from the previous Collins Apex forward-facing staggered seats, known as Prestige Suites. The Prestige Suites 2.0 is designed in a staggered 1-2-1 configuration, ensuring each passenger direct aisle access and ample privacy.

The seats offer 46 inches of pitch, 21 inches of width, and can be transformed into a flat bed measuring between 78.2 and 79.2 inches. A standout feature of these seats is the inclusion of privacy doors that stand 52 inches high, offering a more secluded experience even when positioned closer to the aisle.

Tech-savvy travelers will appreciate the suite’s cutting-edge features, which include a 23.8-inch ultra-high-definition entertainment monitor, 60W USB-C charging, AC power outlets, and wireless charging capabilities.

The wireless charging pad is a notable highlight, reflecting the suite’s advanced technological integration.

The cabin is flanked by lavatories and galleys at both the front and the rear, ensuring easy access for all passengers.

A striking departure from Korean Air’s traditional design, the new seats feature a bold brown color palette. This is a significant change from the airline’s iconic Morning Calm blue and bright white interiors.

The new design incorporates semi-matte deep brown side consoles with metallic tops, brushed coppery-almond cabinet doors, and textured tan interior shrouds, giving the cabin a modern and sophisticated look.
