Almost 530 new planes needed in sub-Saharan Africa

Forecast: 528 new passenger aircraft required; total value US$65billion

In the coming 20 years, airlines in sub-Saharan Africa are forecast to need 528 new passenger aircraft, with a total value of US$65billion. The new Airbus Global Market Forecast says that these include 350 single aisle aircraft, 157 twin-aisle and long-range planes and 21 super-jumbos such as the A380. Airlines in the Africa and Indian Ocean region overall are forecast to require 1,101 new aircraft by 2030, valued at US$126 billion.
Growth in the airline industry in Africa will be pushed by an expanding middle class, tourism, growing trade liberalisation and booming business in developing nations.
