Germany will need 1000 new planes by 2030

“German airlines will take more aircraft than any other European country”

Among its other announcements at the ILA Berlin Air Show this week, Airbus has said it sees Germany needing more than 1,000 new passenger aircraft and freighters in the coming 20 years, worth $148 billion. Air travel in Germany is growing steadily, Airbus says, part of a predicted average annual traffic growth of 4.1% for Europe during the period. Germany’s demand will include 690 single-aisle aircraft, 230 twin-aisle medium to long-range wide-body planes and around 100 “superjumbos” like the A380.
“German airlines will take more aircraft than any other European country and globally it is one of the top five countries,” Chris Emerson, Airbus’ SVP for future programs and market strategy, said. “This demand is driven by Germany’s position as a major aviation gateway for its own people and for globally connecting passengers.”
