LE BOURGET, France —

Boeing has announced deals for more than 50 planes worth billions of dollars at the Paris Air Show.

The company says Air Lease Corp. will buy up to 33 new planes, including 737s, 777s and 787s. The deal is a mix of orders and options, and Boeing did not list a dollar value.

Boeing says two undisclosed customers signed orders and commitments for 17 747-8 Intercontinentals. The new version of the jumbojet carries 467 passengers. The orders are worth $5.4 billion.

And Boeing says Qatar Airways has ordered six 777 jets in a $1.7 billion deal.

Boeing also announced an agreement Monday with the Aviation Industry Corporation of China for a parts factory in China. It will start by making rudders for the 737.
