Below is the final scoreboard tally for the Paris Air Show 2023:

ManufacturerDay 1Day 2Day 3Day 4Day 5Grand Total

This scoreboard will be handling firm orders, Memorandum of Understanding & letters of Intent as one collective figure. Conversion orders are not applicable in this table.
* = Contains orders that are firmed up from previous agreements or whether the manufacturer has chosen to disclose them during the Paris Air Show.
* by Embraer = Not including eVTOL orders. With eVTOL orders, this would come to a total of 202 aircraft.
*** = Sales campaign finished.

Embraer’s eVTOL Orders Would Have Brought The Total to 202 Aircraft

The reasoning behind not including the eVTOL orders from Embraer is down to the current nature of the order total including just commercial jets only that are in existence.

That being said, this side of the business from Embraer performed very well at the Paris Air Show, which we will go into detail about below:

Embraer announced three orders in one day on June 20, which came from Voar Aviation, Nordic Aviation Capital and Wideroe Zero.

Voar Aviation signed a letter of intent for up to 70 eVTOL aircraft, with Nordic Aviation Capital ordering 30, and Wideroe Zero ordering 50.

“This collaboration represents a significant milestone in our mission to revolutionize urban transportation and shape the future of Urban Air Mobility. By combining our expertise and leveraging Voar’s established infrastructure, we aim to accelerate the adoption of eVTOL technology and create a sustainable, integrated and complete ecosystem for urban air travel,” said Andre Stein, Co-CEO of Eve.

“Our solutions extend beyond the eVTOL itself; we are developing a full portfolio to foster the market’s launch and scalability.”

Overall: Strong Sign of Recovery, But Rehashed Orders in Le Bourget?

As mentioned from a quote in The Air Current, an industry leader said: “Everyone’s really excited, but no one is sure about what”.

There has been a lot of excitement over orders, but also criticism about orders being rehashed in a bid to boost up numbers at the Paris Air Show.

For example, Boeing and Airbus have done this with its Air India order from February this year, with orders being firmed rather than actually created as fresh orders at the air show.

Even so, it is a lot of aircraft that are being firmed up for order, which is a strong sign of the path to recovery that the aviation industry has been craving post-pandemic.

That being said, it has been an eventful couple of days at the Paris Air Show! Thank you so much for following our live coverage over the last few weeks! Onto the next airshow!
