French prosecutors open probe of possible crimes linked to Jeffrey Epstein

Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in Cambridge, MA on 9/8/04. Epstein is connected with several prominent people including politicians, actors and academics.

French prosecutors said Friday they are opening an investigation into possible crimes, including the rape of children and minors, related to the sex-trafficking case of deceased financier Jeffrey Epstein.

The Paris Public Prosecutors’ Office said it was launching a “preliminary investigation” based in part on “the exchanges with the competent American authorities in the so-called ‘Epstein’ case,” according to a translation of that office’s statement.

The investigation “will aim to uncover possible offenses committed not only on the national territory, but also abroad to the detriment of French victims or in France against individuals of French nationality,” the statement said.

Epstein, who was a former friend of Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, was accused by federal prosecutors in New York of sex trafficking of minors and sex trafficking conspiracy. He was arrested by FBI agents in early July as he stepped off his private plane at an airport in Teterboro, New Jersey, which had flown in from Paris.

Epstein reportedly owned an apartment in a high-end Paris neighborhood near the Arc de Triomphe.

He died by hanging himself in a jail cell earlier this month in an apparent suicide, according to his autopsy report.

Epstein had been ordered to remain in federal lockup pending his trial after the judge determined that he would pose a danger to the community if he was released on house arrest to his Upper East Side mansion.

The French prosecutors’ investigation will look into a variety of crimes, such as rape, sexual assault of minors and conspiracy.

Temperatures in France hit 104 F — and they could go higher

PARIS, June 26, 2019 — People cool off at a fountain in the Trocadero Gardens during a heat wave in Paris, France, on June 26, 2019.

The current heatwave in France could lead to a 10% cut in wheat production, one analyst has told CNBC.

France saw temperatures of 104 Fahrenheit in some cities on Wednesday and that’s likely to continue over the coming days, according to France’s weather agency. Almost the entire country is on orange alert — the second-highest in the agency’s scale for weather warnings. More than 50 schools close to Paris were shut and older cars were banned in the capital.

“Currently we have very high temperatures in France and we feel that will have some impact on wheat yield,” Gautier Maupu, international consultant at Agritel, a French agricultural and agroindustry markets research provider, told CNBC Thursday.

He explained that the very high temperatures can affect yield potential, given that the crops are currently on their last cycle. Production can decrease between 5% to 10%, he said.

If the heatwave lasts more than 10 days, the reduction in yield will be even higher, Maupu added.

Here's who bought what at this year's Paris Air Show

PARIS – The 2019 Paris Air Show will run until Sunday as Le Bourget Airport, situated in the city’s northern suburbs, opens its doors to the public. While the aircraft and technology will remain on full display, all the big airline representatives and major plane manufacturers will leave, drawing the back room negotiations and mega deals to a close. With the big announcements now made, CNBC takes a look at some of the contracts and promises announced in the commercial aviation sector since Monday.

Airbus

In the months leading up to the show, Airbus had few orders coming on to its books. Observers predicted that the firm, enjoying its 50th anniversary, would be keen to announce deals under the Parisian sun. The European plane maker kicked off Monday with a double-whammy press conference – first announcing the launch of its widely anticipated A321XLR and backing that up with 27 initial orders for the plane from Air Lease Corporation. The single-aisle plane is seen as an economic solution to airlines who want to serve long distances between smaller cities, and it gathered momentum throughout the week.

Airbus A321XLR Soruce: Airbus

50 XLR orders came in from American Airlines and 32 from Indigo Partners, the U.S. private equity fund run by airline investor Bill Franke. Other buyers of the XLR included Lebanon’s Middle East, Philippines’ Cebu Pacific Airlines, Qantas Airways and British Airways parent, IAG. The A320 and A321 new engine option (neo), on which the XLR is based, also proved popular with Airbus inking contracts with China Airlines, Cebu Pacific Airlines, and Saudi Arabian airlines. Virgin Atlantic signed up to 14 wide-body A330neos and said it would look at the option to buy six more. Virgin says it sees the expansion of Heathrow airport as an opportunity to become a second flag carrier out of the U.K. after British Airways. Contract value of the deals is not released but the sticker price before negotiation for completely new Airbus sales looks to have exceeded $35 billion.

Boeing

Boeing’s commercial aircraft team has had well documented problems leading up to this year’s Paris Air Show The grounding of the 737 Max plane following two fatal crashes has seen airline interest grind to a halt. Some felt the U.S, plane manufacturer might offer a steep discount to get some fresh momentum and belief behind the Max but after the opening Monday, typically a busy day for air show orders, Boeing had sold no new planes. Tuesday started slowly too until the aircraft maker announced that it had sold 20 of its 787-9 and 787-10 Dreamliner jets to Korean Air, marking its first plane sale since March.

Other orders came from China Airlines and Qatar Airways who bought six and five respectively of Boeing’s 777 freighter model. Blushes were spared when Boeing roared back with a huge 200 plane order by IAG for, crucially, the 737 Max. Observers speculated that the British Airways parent likely secured a huge discount to the list price of $24 billion, as well as noting that the deal was only a letter of intent rather than any firm order. Added to that were deals with GECAS for ten 737-800 converted freighters and a commitment by Air lease Corporation to buy 5 wide body 787 Dreamliners. It is hard to be certain of the true sales value of Boeing’s Paris Air Show but after the IAG rescue act, the list price total looks, like Airbus, to have trickled past $35 billion.

Best of the rest

Of the smaller manufacturers, Brazilian firm Embraer saved the best until last with a Wednesday evening deal to sell 15 of its E195 E2 jets to KLM. The Dutch airline, who will use the planes on its sister airline “Cityhopper,” also has an option to buy 20 more. Based on Embarer’s catalog pricing, the firm has taken orders of 78 aircraft, worth around $4.6 billion, during the Paris Air Show this week.

Meanwhile, the Japanese planemaker Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation announced it’s in discussions with an unnamed U.S. airline over the sale of its SpaceJet M100 aircraft. The aviation firm revealed at the Paris Air Show this week that the narrow-body regional plane should be ready for market in 2023. Moving all the way down in size, Israeli start-up Eviation said it was shaking up the airline industry with the launch of its 9 passenger all-electric plane. The battery-powered plane has yet to begin flight testing but already has a buyer. U.S. regional airline Cape Air is set to buy a “double-digit” number of the plane which has a list price of around $4 million each. First deliveries of the Eviation are set for 2022.

Dutch airline KLM orders up to 35 planes as it looks to refresh Cityhopper fleet

PARIS — Brazilian aerospace firm Embraer announced Wednesday that Dutch airline KLM has committed to buying as many as 35 of its E195-E2 aircraft. KLM Cityhopper, which is a subsidiary of the main KLM airline, has offered a firm order to buy 15 jets with purchase rights for 20 more. The 15 firm deliveries from Embraer to KLM are expected to be made between 2021 and 2024.

Dutch airline KLM orders up to 35 planes as it looks to refresh Cityhopper fleet

An Embraer E195 jet airliner on display at the 2019 Paris Air Show opened at Le Bourget Airport.

PARIS — Brazilian aerospace firm Embraer announced Wednesday that Dutch airline KLM has committed to buying as many as 35 of its E195-E2 aircraft.

KLM Cityhopper, which is a subsidiary of the main KLM airline, has offered a firm order to buy 15 jets with purchase rights for 20 more. Based on current list prices the deal has a value of around $2.5 billion, although a steep discount on that figure is expected.

The deal, again based on Embarer’s catalog pricing, means that the conglomerate has taken orders of 78 aircraft, worth around $4.6 billion, during the Paris Air Show this week.

The 15 firm deliveries from Embraer to KLM are expected to be made between 2021 and 2024.

Speaking at the press conference, KLM President and CEO Pieter Elbers said previous purchases of Embraer’s E190 and E175 model had expanded the airline’s route network, but refused to be drawn on any new destinations thanks to the E195-E2’s longer range.

The Embraer E195-E2 is claimed to use 30% less fuel compared to KLM Cityhopper’s current fleet of Embraer E190s, leading Elbers to describe the plane as “environmentally friendly.”

Elbers added that existing Embraer aircraft in the KLM fleet had received “a lot of positive feedback” from customers.

He said the slot availability at the busy Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam would determine if the aircraft would be used as a replacement to older planes or also as an opportunity to expand.

United Technologies makes hybrid-electric plane push with ‘Project 804’

United Technologies makes hybrid-electric plane push with 'Project 804'

Paul Eremenko, chief technical officer of United Technologies Corp., right, speaks beside Bruno Stoufflet, chief technical officer of Dassault Aviation SA, during the 53rd International Paris Air Show at Le Bourget in Paris, France, on Tuesday, June 18, 2019.

Aerospace and defense giant United Technologies says it’s working to put a hybrid-electric turboprop airplane into the sky within three years.

Dubbed “Project 804,” United Technologies has said its aim is to enable certified hybrid-electric regional travel within 10 years. Regional airlines typically do shorter flights into smaller airports that the mainline carriers can’t fit bigger planes into.

Speaking at the Paris Air Show Monday, the chief technology officer of United Technologies, Paul Eremenko, told CNBC that the notion of hybrid propulsion is very similar to what you might have in an automobile.

“In the case of Project 804 we’re basically taking a commuter regional turboprop airplane and we’re making it such that during take-off and climb, about half the energy is supplied electrically and about half of the supply is maintained by the engine,” he said.

Eremenko added that energy would be replenished back into the battery during the descent, which could be used in case a landing was not completed properly.

The project, scheduled to fly in 2022, will solely be a technology demonstrator and would center around an aircraft that could be used as a city hopper.

The design is premised on a mid-sized regional turboprop, using a typical existing airframe, control systems and propellers but adding in new battery technology and a 2-megawatt hybrid-electric propulsion system.

The test-bed plane will only swap out one traditional engine, so initial flights can be conducted in a safer manner.

Eremenko said the ultimate aim of the project is to attempt to secure as much as a 30% fuel saving on shorter flights, which he described as “huge in an industry trying to shave 1 or 2%.”

United Technologies is set to merge with Raytheon in a mega deal to become the second-largest aerospace and defense company in the U.S., after Boeing, with an estimated $74 billion in sales.

The firm has said the new combined organization will work closely with all major plane builders and there would be no preferential treatment between the likes of Boeing and Airbus as the aircraft would be “platform agnostic.”

Now watch: United Technologies CEO Greg Hayes on the Raytheon merger

All-electric jet firm Eviation announces US regional airline as first customer, predicts delivery in 2022

Eviation chief executive Omer Bar-Yohay reveals future plans for his company’s nine-seat electric plane at the 2019 Paris Air Show.

PARIS — The Israeli start-up Eviation announced at the Paris Air Show that U.S regional airline Cape Air is to buy its electric aircraft.

Eviation is developing a nine-passenger aircraft designed to fly up to 650 miles at around 240 knots (276 miles per hour). A commercial jet would cruise around 500 miles per hour. The electric plane — called Alice with a prototype being unveiled at the show this week — is designed for the sort of distances usually conducted by train.

Cape Air is set to buy a “double-digit” number of the plane which has a list price of around $4 million each. It’s expected that any customer would be able to negotiate a smaller figure.

The company’s chief executive, Omer Bar-Yohay, told a press conference Tuesday that he expected to receive certification by late 2021, with deliveries predicted for 2022.

“This aircraft is not some future maybe. It is there, ready and waiting,” he said.

Bar-Yohay cited the contributions from Honeywell who built the plane’s controls as well as Siemens, and magniX who provided the electric motor and related functions.

Boeing records zero new plane orders as Paris Air Show starts slow

Security guards overlook an Boeing Co. 787-9 aircraft operated by Air Tahiti Nui, during the 53rd International Paris Air Show at Le Bourget in Paris, France, on Tuesday, June 18, 2019. Boeing knew the Paris Air Show would be slow, but this may have been worse than they expected. By comparison, Airbus flew into Paris expecting to grab most of the new plane orders with the introduction of a new narrow-body plane, the A321XLR. Airbus CEO Guillaume Faury is confident the stretch version of the A321

Boeing records zero new plane orders as Paris Air Show starts slow

Security guards overlook an Boeing Co. 787-9 aircraft operated by Air Tahiti Nui, during the 53rd International Paris Air Show at Le Bourget in Paris, France, on Tuesday, June 18, 2019.

Boeing knew the Paris Air Show would be slow, but this may have been worse than they expected. On day one of the show, Boeing did not announce a single new order for any of its airplanes, while Airbus recorded orders and options for 123 planes, according to the aviation consulting firm IBA.iQ.

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg admitted to CNBC that this air show would not be about orders, but instead be an opportunity for his company to reassure customers and suppliers that Boeing is making progress getting the grounded 737 Max back in the air.

“We’ll get it back in the air when it’s safe — that is the most important thing here,” Muilenburg told CNBC.

Boeing did announce General Electric’s aircraft leasing division, GECAS, will convert a previous order of 10 737-900 planes into freighter models.

By comparison, Airbus flew into Paris expecting to grab most of the new plane orders with the introduction of a new narrow-body plane, the A321XLR. That happened early Monday morning when Air Lease Corporation, which leases hundreds of planes to airlines around the world, places an $11 billion order for 100 Airbus planes, including 27 XLR’s.

Air Lease CEO John Plueger told CNBC the XLR will be “a blockbuster” when first deliveries start in 2023. “This is in our view a true 757 replacement, but on a much more fuel efficient basis,” he said.

Airbus CEO Guillaume Faury is confident the stretch version of the A321LR will be certified with the next four years. “We think there is strong demand for the plane,” he said after launching the plane.

Overall orders at this years air show are expected to be their lowest since 2016 according to IBA.iQ.

WATCH: Boeing 737 Max is the talk of the Paris Air Show

New York, London and Paris remain the world’s most competitive cities — but perhaps not for long

New York, London and Paris continue to dominate as the world’s top three most competitive cities. That’s the conclusion of the 2019 Global Cities Report from management consulting company A.T. Kearney, which ranks the world’s major cities on their attractiveness for businesses and employees. For the tenth year in a row, New York (1st), London (2nd) and Paris (3rd) retained their titles as the world’s three most competitive cities based on a variety of factors including business activity and cult

New York, London and Paris remain the world's most competitive cities — but perhaps not for long

New York, London and Paris continue to dominate as the world’s top three most competitive cities.

But their prime positions could be up for contention as progress across Europe, Asia and the Middle East shows signs of disrupting the status quo.

That’s the conclusion of the 2019 Global Cities Report from management consulting company A.T. Kearney, which ranks the world’s major cities on their attractiveness for businesses and employees.

For the tenth year in a row, New York (1st), London (2nd) and Paris (3rd) retained their titles as the world’s three most competitive cities based on a variety of factors including business activity and culture, human capital, political engagement and information exchange.

New York ranked especially highly for business activity and human capital, while Paris performed well for information exchange and London for culture.

The leading trio were joined in the top 10 of the “Global Cities Index” by Tokyo (4th), Hong Kong (5th), Singapore (6th), Los Angeles (7th), Chicago (8th), Beijing (9th) and Washington D.C. (10th).
