SINGAPORE -- Asia's largest air show is in full swing here, with civilian and military manufacturers jostling for a piece of the region's growing market.
Major deals underway at this year's Singapore Airshow include an order for up to 100 planes from European giant Airbus by VietJetAir, a low-cost carrier and Vietnam's first private airline. The order includes 63 smaller aircraft costing a total of $6.4 billion, among them the new A320neo from Airbus. Purchase rights and leases make up the remainder of the agreement. VietJetAir has plans for expanding into Thailand as well.
