Demand for wide-body aircraft, cargo to soar in ME: Boeing



As per Boeing’s Commercial Market Outlook (CMO) forecast, 45 per cent of wide-body aircraft would be delivered to Middle East airlines over the next 20 years—the highest percentage of the 10 global regions featured in the CMO. Darren Hulst, Vice President, Commercial Marketing, Boeing, said, “The Middle Eastern airlines have increasingly expanded their influence and reach, transforming the region into an international air transit hub.” As per the CMO, 3,025 new aircraft would be delivered to the Middle East by 2042, including 1,350 wide-body aircraft. “As the airlines in the region will require efficient and versatile fleet solutions, Boeing products will be ready to meet market demand,” he added. Boeing stated the Middle East single-aisle fleet is expected to more than double as low-cost carriers (LCCs) and short-haul networks continue to develop and expand. By 2042, nearly half of the region’s aircraft will be single-aisle jets.
