DASSAULT AVIATION Group announced its order intake, deliveries and backlog in units as of December 31st, 2016 (figures not reviewed by the auditors):
Order Intake in Units
36 Rafale Export were ordered in 2016 following the execution and the coming into force of the contract with India, compared to 48 ordered in 2015 (Egypt 24 and Qatar 24). This new order demonstrates once again the Rafale’s performances.
33 Falcon were ordered in 2016 and 12 Falcon 5X were cancelled, compared to 45 Falcon ordered and 20 Falcon Netjets cancelled in 2015. The weakness of the order intake reflects a difficult business jets market.
