Aviation Week network, a leading US aviation magazine, said on Thursday that global commercial aircraft deliveries in the next 10 years would be 30% less than predicted before the outbreak.
Dan Williams, an analyst at aviation weekly, said the forecast spanned from regional jets to large wide body aircraft, whose demand would be hardest hit.
the magazine currently predicts that global commercial aircraft deliveries will be slightly less than 16000 between 2021 and 2030. Among them, the delivery of wide body aircraft is expected to be slightly higher than 2500, which is more than 40% lower than the previous forecast of 4300.
airlines around the world are likely to retire most dual channel Quad jets, except for the newer Boeing 747-8i and some Airbus A380s.
