Global avi­a­tion sec­tor con­tin­ued its good run in 2017. With eco­nomic growth across the board world­wide, lower trans­port costs and im­proved con­nec­tiv­ity, this year proved to be yet an­other suc­cess­ful year for the air­lines and the avi­a­tion in­dus­try in gen­eral. Pas­sen­ger traf­fic grew by 7 per cent and cargo by 9 per cent show­ing growth at a steady pace.

While the two gi­ants – Boe­ing and Air­bus con­tin­ued their bat­tle to pick up sub­stan­tial or­ders from across the globe, es­pe­cially for their lat­est air­planes on of­fer, re­gional air­craft man­u­fac­tur­ers like Em­braer and COMAC also made sig­nif­i­cant in­roads with air­lines pre­fer­ring to “right size” their fleets. Here is a snap-shot of the ma­jor avi­a­tion events dur­ing 2017.
