Airbus said on Thursday that it had won purchase commitments to buy planes worth almost 14 billion euros at the Farnborough Airshow.

That breaks down to firm purchase orders for 54 and pledges to buy a further sixty one.

Chief Executive Fabrice Bregier also said wing problems on its new A350 passenger jet would not mean delays.

Sales chief John Leahy confirmed the company is on target to sell 30 of its A380 superjumbos this year.

Fears over a delay to the A350 hit EADS’ shares on Wednesday, while weak sales of the A380 have also been a worry.
