The long-haul carrier Emirates says it has struck a deal valued at $21.4 billion with Airbus, while saying it is sad to see the end of production of the double-decker A380 jetliner.
The value of the deal was not immediately made public and it came as French President Emmanuel Macron wrapped up his three-day business trip to China.
Improving passenger and cargo numbers saw the Asian carrier increase profits in the second quarter, but analysts warned of future challenges.
The aircraft landed following a “serious damage” to one of its four engines, airline says.
No-one was injured in the incident, but passengers remained on board for hours before they were evacuated.
The US planemaker said it had more than 240 orders and commitments from at least 10 customers for the new 737 MAX 10. President Emmanuel Macron flew into Paris on an Airbus A400M military transporter to open the world's biggest air show.
