According to a report produced by Boeing, the Current Market Outlook (CMO) of 2017, in the analysis of the Latin American market evaluated by the US$ 250 billion study, it is expected that, within 20 years, 3.01 thousand new aircraft will arrive to the region.
Following the global trend, this new fleet would be mostly single-aisle aircraft. The 2,600 units acquired would increase the share of this type of aircraft in Latin America from 79% to 84%. The percentages of small fuselage aircraft (8%), with over 210 units, and medium/large fuselage (1%) plus 20 units would be maintained. Regional jets (from 6% to 4%) and wide-fuselage freighters (from 6% to 3%) would lose space, with 130 and 20 new aircraft respectively.
When we talk about executive aviation, Brazil alone represents 5% of the global business aviation market, while Latin America as a whole represents 7%.
