Airbus’ Global Market Forecast for 2014-2033

It is one hundred years since the world’s first paying passenger took to the skies in 1914. Today 32 million flights carry three billion passengers and 50 million tonnes of freight a year. Globally the aviation sector’s economic impact is estimated at US$2.4 trillion annually. Today aviation is so integral to jobs, to commerce and to international trade that it has become a necessity. Flying has become so easily accessible that people chose to fly on demand.

 

In the next 20 years (2014-2033), according to Airbus’ Global Market Forecast, passenger traffic will grow annually at 4.7% driving a need for around 31,400 new passenger and freighter aircraft (100 seats and above) worth US$4.6 trillion. The passenger and freighter fleet will increase from today’s 18,500 aircraft to 37,500 by 2033, an increase of nearly 19,000 aircraft. Some 12,400 older less fuel efficient passenger and freighter aircraft will be retired.

Opinion: Airbus’s A320neo Validates Early Dreams

Opinion: Airbus’s A320neo Validates Early Dreams | Aero | Scoop.it

Contrary to what most public relations firms recommend, Airbus has chosen to downplay the debut of the A320neo (New Engine Option). No official ceremony was staged, unlike the presentation—with Hollywood-style hoopla—for the debut of the A320 in 1987. Of course theA320neo is not an all-new commercial transport, but it does mark the first time that the European manufacturer has secured more than 3,000 firm orders for an aircraft—before it even takes to the air.

La semana pasada nos desplazamos a las oficinas de Ingeinnova Aeronautics para realizar una presentación de posibles alternativas biomiméticas a aplicar dentro de uno de los proyectos de I+D+i en los que estamos colaborando con ellos. Por mucho que hayas preparado la presentación, antes de cada reunión es inevitable sentir cierto nerviosismo,  y es que hay un factor que escapa totalmente a tu control: el factor humano ¿Con qué tipo de personas me encontraré? ¿Me escucharán o tendré que luchar contra la temida indiferencia? ¿Les parecerán mis propuestas razonables o me toparé con un muro de incredulidad?
