Chinees-Russisch widebody vliegtuig op markt Airbus en Boeing

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.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
