Air Transport

Growing Cargo Space Poses Challenge

Next few years will see a major concentration of effort by airline freight marketing officials to devise a formula to fill the cavernous, but still largely empty, bellies of their wide-body jets with revenue-producing freight. They are being spurred by the rapidly growing capacity of the belly space in the world’s transport fleet, and by their generally disappointing results to date to fill that space.

Inflation, Demands Hike Military Avionics Funds

Spending for military avionics and related electronics will rise gradually for the rest of the decade—largely to offset inflation, but also because advanced defense systems require arising electronics content to achieve their performance goals.
