Single-Aisle Aircraft Driving Aircraft Demand In Asia, Says Boeing

Boeing claims that strong economic and passenger growth will be the main cause of new aircraft demand in the Asia Pacific region. They have estimated that airlines in the region will need an additional 12,820 aircraft, valued at $1.9tn, representing 36 per cent of the world’s new deliveries over the next 20 years. Boeing project that passenger airlines in the region will primarily rely on single-aisle aircraft as, according to Randy Tinseth, Boeing’s vice president, marketing, “new low-cost carriers and demand for intra-Asia travel have fuelled the substantial increase in single-aisle airplanes”. The company forecasts that long-haul traffic will rely on fuel efficient twin-aisled aircraft.
