Graphic News

November 6, 2018 -- Met de ontwikkeling van het vliegtuig CR929, willen China en Rusland
de lucratieve markt op voor commerciële wide-body vliegtuigen die
nu wordt gedomineerd door Boeing 787 en Airbus A350-jets. CRAIC streeft naar 10% van de wide-body markt. Boeing voorspelde dat
luchtvaartmaatschappijen wereldwijd van 2016 tot 2035 9.100 wide-body vliegtuigen nodig hebben, met een vervangingsgolf rond 2021-2028

The CR929 plane is being developed by China-Russia Commercial Aircraft International Corporation (CRAIC), a joint venture between Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC) and Russia's United Aircraft Corp (UAC).

The fuselage will be 63.8m long and 5.92m wide, and the wing span will be of 63.9m. It will have a passenger capacity of 280 seats in a three-class configuration, with a range of 12,000km.

These measurements put the aircraft roughly in-line with the Airbus A330-300, which is widely popular in China. The jet also represents a competitive response to the A350-900 and the Boeing 787-9 and -10.

CRAIC aims to take 10% of the wide-body market. Boeing forecast airlines worldwide would need 9,100 wide-body planes from 2016 to 2035, with a wave of replacement demand around 2021-2028.
