Asia-Pacific customers will take over a third of new passenger aircraft deliveries in the next two decades.

Airbus said in its latest global market forecast that the region would account for 34% - or 9,160 - of the passenger airframes in demand.

India would have the fastest domestic passenger traffic growth rate, 9.8%, followed by China with 7.2%.

Europe would run in second place with 22%, just ahead of North America with a similar share.

Latin America, the Middle East, Africa and the CIS would have a share in single digits.

But the USA would be the individual country with highest passenger aircraft demand, requiring nearly 5,400 airframes in the next 20 years, followed by China with 4,000, then Germany and India with just over 1,000 each.
