[photopress:chinacargoaircraft.jpg,full,alignright]China Aviation Industry Corporation (AVIC), a state-owned company, has forecast that China’s aviation industry will need more than 3,000 civil aircraft in next 20 years.
A report released by AVIC said the industry would require 3,110 more civil aircraft, including 2,230 large jetliners and 880 feeder aircraft.
AIr cargo volume will come to 60 billion ton-kilometers by the end of 2025, an annual increase of 10.7 percent. Which will take up a fair amount of space.
So taking into account decommissioned aircraft, the industry is expected to have 3,370 aircraft by the end of 2025, including 2,470 large jetliners.
The report said passenger volume will see an annual increase of 8.6 percent and will exceed one trillion person kilometers by the end of 2025.
China’s air transport industry is expected to develop faster than the world average. In 2005, its air transport volume ranked second in the world.
