Airbus has announced an order to supply nine jets to US leasing firm CIT in a deal that could be worth $1bn (£550m).
The A320 is one the most popular of the Airbus fleet
It will supply five A330-200 and four A320 planes to the firm.
The sales take its total order book announced at the Farnborough Airshow to 94 planes, estimated to generate about $7.4bn in revenue.
Its arch-rival Boeing has sold 74 aircraft, but has had more interest in its larger jets, leading to orders of about $10bn.
Farnborough has seen Airbus unveil plans for its "extra-wide" long-haul A350.
The A350 model, which is meant to be more fuel-efficient, was redesigned after being outstripped in sales by Boeing's Dreamliner 787.
Other deals announced so far at the show include two orders worth $306m from Pegasus Aviation Finance Company won by Boeing, and a $1.1bn contract signed by BAE Systems with the British government for 12 Nimrod coastal patrol aircraft.
Meanwhile, the Malaysian budget carrier AirAsia is to exercise its option on 40 more Airbus A320 planes, to ready itself for domestic expansion and more flights within Asia.
