US -based Boeing announced a total of 673 orders and commitments for planes, compared with 571 at last year's Paris Air Show, which alternates with Farnborough as the aviation industry's premier showcase.

Novus Aviation Capital has signed an agreement for up to four 777-300ERs.

Of these, 80 are the recently launched 737 MAX 10 - the largest version of Boeing's best-selling 737 range - and 20 are the benchmark 737 MAX 8 model.

"The deal is also expected to increase bilateral trade turnover between Việt Nam and the USA - the home of Boeing", it said.

In total, ALC has now placed orders and commitments for 361 Boeing airplanes since 2010, including 288 737s, 21 777s and 52 787 Dreamliners.

In a week-long competition to land multi-billion dollar deals, Boeing beat Airbus to the top spot with 528 new orders and commitments at the Airshow, boosted by a renewed rise in air cargo markets.

Boeing edged out Airbus to claim a sales victory at the Farnborough air show as its European rival failed to land an anticipated 100-jet order amid a flurry of late deals at the year's biggest aviation expo.

The 787 Dreamliner is a family of super-efficient and long-range airplanes that use 20 percent less fuel than the airplanes it replaces.

Muilenburg added: "We will continue to win in the marketplace thanks to our talented team, who innovate across our enterprise with One Boeing collaboration and deliver on our proven portfolio with relentless customer focus". The carrier was hinting at an order on Day 1 of Farnborough.

But the planemaker's hopes of securing an additional order for 100 A321neo from AirAsia appeared to have been dashed. The manufacturer calls it "an advanced analytics solution enabled my multi-source surveillance data".
