Asia Pacific airline fleet growth to peak in 2010; China Southern, Air China and ANA fastest growth


Asia Pacific airlines are expected to add around 468 new aircraft to their fleets in 2010, making it a peak year for deliveries to the region, after 429 deliveries last year and a similar number booked for 2011.
