Boeing Expects to Deliver 140 Planes to China This Year

Tuesday, 21 Jan 2014 07:57 PM

Boeing Co. said it delivered a record number of jets to China last year and expects to hand over a similar number of aircraft this year as growth in the world’s second-biggest economy spurs demand for air travel.

Deliveries this year to China will be in the range of 140 aircraft after handing over a record 143 planes last year, Marc Allen, president of Boeing China, said in Beijing Wednesday. The company won orders for 230 new aircraft from the country last year, he said.

China’s economic growth is helping air travel affordable to more people, increasing demand for new airplanes from carriers such as Air China Ltd., China Southern Airlines Co. and China Eastern Airlines Corp. The nation is easing aviation regulations and boosting infrastructure spending as Chinese carriers are forecast to require more than 5,000 planes in the next 20 years.

Boeing plans to bring an additional two to three staff to China to work with the country’s low-cost carriers, Allen said.

Of the 230 orders the Chicago-based airline won in China last year, 130 were from leasing companies and the remainder from airlines, Allen said.
