Boeing latest Market Outlook predicts demand for 41,000 new aircraft by 2041

American planemaker Boeing has released it’s annual Commercial Market Outlook (CMO) in which it projects a demand for 41,000 new aircraft through 2041, underlining the industry’s resilience against the global pandemic. This equates to a US$7.2 trillion value, at today’s figures, for delivered aircraft, half of which will be used to replace existing planes in order to improve fuel efficiencies and sustainability. Of the 41, 000 aircraft to be delivered, it is estimated that 75% will be narrow-body jets and 18% will be wide-body aircraft, while Boeing estimates that US$3.6 trillion of the demand will be for Boeing related products beyond aircraft, including maintenance and modifications such as converted freighters; digital solutions that increase efficiency and reduce cost; and effective training to enable the supply of pilots and technicians.

"Despite the unprecedented disruption over the past two years, the aviation industry has shown incredible resilience adapting to the challenge," said Ihssane Mounir, Boeing's Senior Vice President of Commercial Sales and Marketing. "The 2022 CMO draws upon our expertise forecasting market trends to demonstrate the strong demand for new airplanes and related services in the coming decades, providing a waypoint as the industry continues to navigate its recovery."

The CMO also predicts continued robust demand for dedicated freighters to support global supply chains and growing express networks. Carriers will need 2,800 additional freighters overall, including 940 new wide-body models in addition to converted narrow-body and wide-body freighters over the forecast period. Boeing estimates that Asian markets will account for 40% of long-term global demand for jets, and 20% each for Europe and North America. The company sees South-east Asia fleet growth at 6.2% annually, while the region’s fleet size should quadruple thanks to demand from Indian carriers.

This year's CMO excludes any forecast for airplane deliveries to Russia due to sanctions against aircraft exports. This has ‘reduced’ global 20-year demand by about 1,500 airplanes when compared to last year's CMO.

Delta selects largest Boeing 737 MAX model, ordering 100 737-10s with options for 30 more jets

Delta Air Lines will modernise its single-aisle fleet with the highly efficient 737 MAX to meet demand as well as its long-term sustainability goals. In a signing ceremony at the Farnborough International Airshow, Boeing and Delta Air Lines confirmed that the carrier is ordering 100 737-10 jets – selecting the largest member of the 737 MAX family – with options for an additional 30 airplanes.

"The Boeing 737-10 will be an important addition to Delta's fleet as we shape a more sustainable future for air travel, with an elevated customer experience, improved fuel efficiency and best-in-class performance," said Ed Bastian, Delta's Chief Executive Officer. "These new aircraft provide superior operating economics and network flexibility and the agreement reflects our prudent approach to deploying our capital."

The 737-10 will provide Delta Air Lines with the best per-seat economics of any single-aisle Boeing model, reducing fuel use and emissions by 20-30% compared to the airplanes it replaces. The jet can cover 99% of single-aisle routes around the world, seating up to 230 passengers with a maximum range of 3,300 nautical miles.

Embraer and Raízen sign LoI with commitment to stimulate development of SAF

Embraer and Raízen have signed a Letter of Intent with a commitment to stimulate the development of the sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production eco-system, reinforcing the sustainability agenda of both companies.

Among all intentions, Embraer will become the first aircraft manufacturer to use (SAF) that may be distributed by Raízen, a global leader in bio-energy. This initiative benefits the air transport industry worldwide and the use of this technology is a fundamental part of Embraer's strategy to neutralize the carbon footprint of its operations by 2040 as more than 60% of emissions in the company's operations (scope 1) arise from the use of aviation fuel in tests and production flights.

“As an integrated energy company, Raízen has challenging goals as we intend to expand the offer renewable energy and fuel sources to the market by 80% and make this increase as efficient as possible in our production process to help produce the impact on our customers,” said Antonio Cardoso, Vice President of Marketing and Services at Raízen. “As the largest sugarcane ethanol producer in the world, it is only natural that we are looking at a possible supply of SAF. This partnership with Embraer, a global reference, reinforces the sustainability agenda and expansion of the company's portfolio.”

The expectation is that Raízen will help Embraer reach the goal of having SAF blends representing 100% of its fuel consumption in Brazil by 2030.
