08:42 EDTEADSY, LUV, JBLU, BA, AAL, CIT, UAL, DALCIT Aerospace president says air traffic to rise in Asia, Latin America in FY14
Tony Diaz, president of CIT Aerospace at CIT Group (CIT) said the airline industry, and with it, air traffic, is expected to increase in 2014, with Asia and Latin America representing the fastest growing markets. Diaz said, "After several years of major airline consolidations, the U.S. is ripe for growth. It’s a market where for the last ten years airlines have been more involved in fixing their balance sheets. It’s time for those airlines to re-fleet, so we see a great opportunity to add aircraft in the U.S. Although consolidation in the U.S. is all but over, international consolidation is still expected, which may ultimately benefit consumers. However, near-term concerns about higher fares will be moderated because there is sufficient competition. Low-cost carriers have penetrated virtually every market and can step in if the large airlines increase fares.” CIT’s current order book focuses on new modern technology aircraft, which includes Boeing’s (BA) 787 and 737 Max, Airbus’s (EADSY) A350 and the A320 Neo. On the horizon for the industry is the E2 version of Embraer’s E-Jet and Boeing’s 777x. Diaz said, “The triple seven-x is going to be a large wide-body, long-haul aircraft, which we think will be very successful in the marketplace." Publicly traded companies in the space include American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Southwest (LUV) and United Continental (UAL).
