China will need 400 more freighters by 2030

Chinese air carriers will add about 400 freighter aeroplanes by 2030, according to the latest market analysis from Boeing.

Randy Tinseth, Boeing Commercial Airplanes vice president of marketing said the majority of the demand will be for large, long-range freighters such as the 747-8F and 777F, given that most traffic growth is projected to occur on long-haul traffic lanes tied to China.

Boeing projections suggest that in total China will require 5,000 new commercial aeroplanes valued at $600 billion over the next 20 years.
