The Paris Air Show, one of the highlights of the aerospace industry’s calendar, starts tomorrow.

Airbus is expected to announce a clutch of new orders for its narrow-bodied A320neo range. Just last week, the EADS-owned firm announced 102 neo sales to Go Airlines of India, and Cebu Pacific, a Philippines-based carrier. By the end of the show, Airbus is expected to have hit 500 orders – just seven months after it decided to build the neos; they come into service in 2015.
