Boeing: China needs 5,580 new aircraft over next 20 years
BEIJING (Reuters) - China will need 5,580 commercial aircraft worth some $780 billion over the next 20 years, according to a statement released by Boeing Co (BA.N) on Thursday.
Tourism in China and within Asia travel will drive the need for single-aisle airplanes, Randy Tinseth, vice president of marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, is quoted as saying in the statement, released at a company event in Beijing.
Deliveries in that segment will total 3,900 by 2032, Boeing said.
