Airlines in China need at least more than 6,800 new fleets over the next 20 years and 55 airlines are expected to spend up to US$1 trillion. Randy Tinseth, Marketing Executive of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, predicts passenger growth in China at 6.4 percent.

"Middle-class growth and visa policy gives the reason the future is very bright for the long-haul aviation market," Tinseth said as quoted by CNNMoney, Sunday, May 7, 2017.

Developing jumbo jet aircraft is China's ambition to rival the dominance of the two giant aircraft manufacturers currently is Aibus and Boeing. The size of the C919 aircraft by Comac's recently test flight also has been designed for 168 seats or almost the same as the Airbus 320 and Boeing 737-800, but has a half price.

Boeing estimates as many as three quarters of new aircraft shipments are single-aisle aircraft carrying 90 to 230 passengers. This type of aircraft commonly used for business trips and vacations.

The demand for widebody aircraft will also increase demand. A total of 1,560 new aircraft of this type will help double the airline's fleet in China for the next 20 years. This category includes Boeing 787 Dreamliner and 777 Line.

Boeing has been playing an important role in the aviation industry infrastructure in China. The Chicago-based plane maker is forecast to contribute US $ 1 trillion to the Chinese economy through joint ventures or purchases from the country's suppliers.
