Mega Order and Optimistic Forecasts: At Dubai Airshow, Aeronautics combines pandemic with past

The first aerospace exhibition since the CVIV-19 crisis has opened Sunday in the emirate. Airbus announced an order of 255 new generation A321 Neo Middle Courriers.


Shelf aircraft waited for two years. Dubai Airshow, the first show from the CVIV-19 crisis, opened its doors in the emirate on November 14. From Airbus to Boeing to the equipment manufacturers, everyone from the aeronautics has made an appointment. As to exorcise the crisis, Seattle’s builder dispatched to Dubai all of his range. Even his lastborn, the Gros-Porteur 777x, which displays a few years behind his calendar, is present on the tarmac.

But the most striking element is the return of the giant controls. At the little game of the one who will garner the biggest contract, Airbus disapped the first. The European aircracer announced an order of 255 new generation A321 NEO medium-couriers, spent by the US Indigo Partners investment fund. An evaluated contract, catalog price, more than $ 33 billion (approximately 28.8 billion euros). With this order, Indigo Partners will be able to provide airlines to its airlines such as the Hungarian Wizz Air, new low cost champion in Europe, or the American Frontier, Mexican Volaris or South American Jetsmart.

This Mega Order comes to give the forecast for the needs of appliances for the next twenty years presented by Airbus in opening of the show. By 2040, the European aircracer predicts that airlines around the world will need 39,000 devices. “We prefer to be a little more conservative” than the Grand Rival Boeing, says Bob Lange, forecast manager and market analyzes at Airbus. The American has evaluated new aircraft requirements at 43,500 aircraft, a turnover of $ 7,200 billion

low cost growth

In twenty years, the world fleet, today established at 23,000 aircraft, will have more than doubled to reach “about 47,000 aircraft”, says Airbus forecast and market analyzes. With two years behind the calendar originally planned by Airbus, according to which “the world has lost two years of growth” because of the pandemic. In the next two decades, 15,250 aircraft will renew the fleets of companies, while the other half will serve to support growth. Once again, the COVID-19 will have made the lines moving. Prior to the crisis, Airbus planned, in 2019, that 60% of the aircraft would participate in the renewal of the fleets, while a third of the purchases of new aircraft would be related to the growth of the industry.
