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. The analysis, presented exclusively in The Centre’s Asia Pacific Aviation's Airline Daily publication, is drawn from Ascend fleet data and shows the region’s airlines added 407 aircraft in the boom economic times in 2007 and 2008. Such an aggressive rate of fleet expansion at the current difficult stage of the economic cycle raises questions as to the ability of airlines to fund such high rates of deliveries.
