20th Sep 2022

Global Aircraft Manufacturer Boeing, in its latest Commercial Market Outlook (CMO) 2022-2041, forecasts 1,010 aircraft deliveries in Africa composed of 740 single aisle, 230 widebody, 20 regional jets, and 20 freighters all worth $176-billion by 2041. Such projection will make a total of 1,570 total African fleet by 2041.

“African carriers are well-positioned to support inter-regional traffic growth and capture market share by offering services that efficiently connect passengers and enable commerce within the continent,” affirmed Boeing Commercial Marketing: Middle East and Africa MD Randy Heisey. “We forecast an increase in the average aircraft size and seats per aircraft for the African fleet, as mid-size, single-aisles, like the Boeing 737 MAX, will be the most in demand for the continent.”

Also, according to the forecast, Africa will need 20,000 more pilots for the next 20 years.
