Boeing Gets a Jump on Air Show with $14.4 Billion in Jet Deals

  Boeing Gets a Jump on Air Show with $14.4 Billion in Jet Deals Boeing Co. isn’t waiting for next month’s Farnborough International Airshow to unveil blockbuster aircraft deals -- or start booking cash. The Chicago-based planemaker is poised to bolster its backlog with orders valued at $14.4 billion thanks to two transactions announced Monday. That’s a break from an industry practice of stockpiling sales for the biggest annual trade expo, which alternates between Paris and Farnborough, outside London.Bamboo Airways, a Vietnamese startup, signed a commitment for 20 of Boeing’s twin-aisle 787-9 Dreamliners, the companies said in a statement. That’s a deal of about $5.

An industry source familiar with the talks said progress was being made by Boeing and Embraer . But people familiar with the negotiations told Reuters Boeing was unlikely to agree to a joint venture in which it held less than 80-90 percent to have full operational control.

Negotiations for the creation of a partnership between Boeing and Embraer were mainly motivated after Airbus took over the rights of the C Series program of Canadian manufacturer Bombardier, the main competitor of the Embraer 's regional jets.

NEW YORK - Boeing and the Brazilian jet maker Embraer will attempt to form a joint venture that would push the U.S. aerospace giant more aggressively into the regional aircraft market.

The new company, which has faced heavy scrutiny from lawmakers in Brazil, is being valued at about $4.7 billion.

The companies said Thursday that Boeing Co. will own 80 per cent of the joint venture, and Embraer SA the remaining 20 per cent.

Brazilian lawmakers have been hesitant to allow any deal, fearing the loss of control of a major industrial and defence asset.

Any partnership between Boeing, based in Chicago, and Embraer would counter strengthening ties between Europe's Airbus and Canada's Bombardier, which have threatened Boeing.
