Asia 'absent' as Farnborough airshow reflects pandemic damage

Confirmation of existing aircraft orders welcomed but new deals thin on the ground

Manufacturers and operators regularly formalize and announce orders and partnerships at the Farnborough International Airshow, in England. And this summer, the five-day event was held in the real world for the first time since before the pandemic.
