Airbus and Boeing, the world’s two largest aircraft manufacturers, reported a combined $15 billion in orders as day two of the Paris Air Show drew to a close.

The show opened with a $6 billion order to Airbus by Philippines airline Cebu Air for 36 new aircraft, followed by a deal to sell an additional 30 A320neo aircraft to Saudi Arabian Airlines, worth $3.3 billion.

Meanwhile, Korean Air ordered 20 Boeing 787 Dreamliners in a deal valued at $6.3 billion.

The Paris Air Show is the largest air show and aerospace-industry fair in the world. It traces its origins back to 1908, when a section of the Paris Motor Show was dedicated to aircraft.
