Boeing said that air travel felt the impact of the economic crisis in 2009. Boeing said that air travel, like nearly every other industry, felt the impact of the economic crisis in 2009. Passenger air traffic declined about 2 percent as the worst recession in over six decades gripped the worldOs economies. But the remarkable resilience of air travel is amply documented in more than 45 years of published editions of the Boeing Current Market Outlook. Commercial aviation has weathered many downturns in the past. Yet recovery has followed quickly as the industry reliably returned to its long-term growth rate of approximately 5 percent per year.

The twin-aisle market, which includes efficient long-range airplanes such as the Boeing 787 and 777, is the fastest growing segment of the market, accounting for 23 percent of the delivery units and 45 percent of the delivery dollars. High fuel costs are compelling airlines to accelerate replacement of older airplanes. In addition, the increased capabilities of the latest longrange, twin-aisle airplanes create opportunities for operators to take advantage of the ongoing liberalization of air transport markets to open new nonstop routes.
