According to the latest forecasts of major aircraft manufacturers for 2021, the civil aviation market affected by the epidemic is about to recover. Boeing estimates that the world will need 19,000 civil aircraft worth $3.2 trillion over the next 10 years. Demand for the 20-year period to 2040 is more than 43,500 new aircraft worth $7.2 trillion, up about 500 from the previous year's forecast. According to COMAC' s latest annual report, by 2040, the global passenger aircraft fleet is expected to reach 45,397 aircraft, and China's fleet size will reach 9,957 aircraft, accounting for 22% of the global passenger aircraft fleet, becoming the world's largest single aviation market.
Up to now, there are 23 airlines in China with the capability of in-flight wireless network service, with a total of 842 aircraft, an increase of 188 aircraft compared with 2020 ancd a year-on-year increase of 29%.Among them,213 aircraft have ground - to - air communication capabilities. According to preliminary statistics, more than 1.3 million people have used the in-flight Internet service this year.
In May, CAAC issued the task list of "To Do practical things for the People", pointing out that the wireless network service of aircraft is relatively slow at present, mainly due to the limitation of communication technology system. To solve this problem, CAAC will work with relevant departments of The State Council to upgrade traditional satellite communication technology to high-throughput satellite communication technology, combined with the new 5G infrastructure, there are three main ways to upgrade the ATG communication system from 4G to 5G communication technology, optimize the existing network structure and enhance the network coverage, accelerate the evolution and upgrading of network infrastructure and effectively improve the communication rate. Moreover, CAAC formulates policies to promote the development of smart civil aviation and encourage airlines to install and upgrade wireless network equipment. At the same time, we should give full play to the advantages of airlines, telecom operators and Internet companies, stimulate market vitality, and constantly integrate and innovate service content and methods, so that more passengers can further enjoy high-quality, diversified and distinctive air network services.
