Some of the demand for new aircraft will be for replacement of older airliners. However, 15,000 of the aircraft are forecasted as purchases of additional aircraft to expand airline fleets worldwide.
Airbus now sees that the economic recovery is stronger than previously predicted. The smaller airline category is especially strong, according to Airbus. Emerging economies are leading the recovery with the airline traffic growth in India being particularly strong.
According to Airbus, 1/3 of all worldwide passenger traffic will be generated in the Asia Pacific region by 2029.
This forecast is more good news for both current pilots, pilots waiting to be hired, and future pilots. Each additional airliner added to the worldwide fleet adds 10 to 14 additional pilot jobs.
