2015-03-18 08:51 Shanghai Daily Web Editor: Li Yan

China will need 6,000 new passenger aircraft over the next 20 years to become the world's largest commercial aircraft market, Boeing, the world's major jet maker, predicted yesterday.

The growing demand for new aircraft is being led by the fast growing low-cost budget carrier in China, especially for single aisle airliner, said Jim Haas, director of Product Marketing at Boeing.

Among the 6,000 new aircraft, likely worth more than US$870 billion, 72 percent of them will be single-aisle passenger aircraft and 13 percent small wide-body aircraft.
