Assessing demand for large freighters, Issue 15 Feb/Mar 2001

Freight traffic growth over 20 years means the large freighter fleet will have to treble in size, and require 770 additional aircraft. Some will come from converted MD-11s and 747s, while others will be new 747-400s, 747- Xs and A380s. What proportion each type will receive is assessed.
