No NMA for Boeing at Paris Air Show
Shortly after Airbus officially launched its A321XLR, Kevin McAllister, President and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said there would be no announcement about the Boeing “797” New Mid-Market Airplane (NMA) during Paris Air Show.
It was one of the most expected decisions of this edition of the Paris Air Show. Boeing’s attempt to focus on the overlooked "middle market" with a new airliner has been anticipated for years now. But customers will have to wait a bit more, as the manufacturer “continues to work on the business case”.
For now, the priority is to put the Boeing 737 MAX back into the sky. In this regard, no date was given during McAllister’s business update briefing.
In its new forecast presented during Paris Air Show, Boeing expects to deliver 44,040 new aircraft over the next twenty years, a 3% increase on 2018's forecast. This represents $6.8 trillion at list price. In addition to other aviation services valued at $9.1 trillion, it would lead to a total commercial market opportunity of $16 trillion through 2038.
