10/5/94 PARIS (Reuter) - European consortium Airbus expects the world passenger jet market to grow by over 13,400 new planes by 2011, worth some $1 trillion, a spokesman said on Tuesday. Airbus Industrie, which estimates its current market share at between 35 percent and 40 percent, wants eventually to overtake the market leader, Boeing Co. of Seattle, which accounts for more than half the sales of world passenger jets. Rivalry between the European and U.S. companies has intensified since the airline industry hit recession after the 1990 Gulf War and the commercial dogfight often spills over into disputes over claims of market share. McDonnell-Douglas is the third maker of jets of over 100 seats, with a share of less than 10 percent. The Airbus spokesman said the forecasts showed the airline industry was now recovering. In its latest newsletter, the four-nation grouping estimates largest sales will go to North American airlines with 32 percent, 31 percent to the Asia/Pacific region, 24 percent for Europe, with Middle East, Africa and Latin America taking the rest. Some 13 major airlines are expected each to take 200 aircraft in the period. 10/4/94 PARIS (Reuter) - Airbus Industries will in the next few weeks ask 12 major airlines for their views on its proposed large passenger jet, to seat between 530 and 850 passengers. The aircraft consortium said in its latest newsletter published Monday it would seek the opinion of airlines in Asia, Europe and North America. It would also canvass suppliers, airports and officials. Airbus unveiled its layout concepts for the large jet last month at the Farnborough Airshow in Britain. An Airbus spokesman said British Airways Plc and Singapore Airlines would be among those it would meet. The two carriers have been supporters of a large jet. The spokesman said two major potential markets for the large jet were the United States, which is embarking on a $950 million program to upgrade its airports, and Japan. Secretary of Transportation Federico Pena last week said air traffic was due to grow 60 percent over 10 years, and the investment would cut delays and increase air travel. Airbus consists of Aerospatiale, British Aerospace Plc, DASA of Daimler-Benz AG and CASA of Spain.
