Event Details

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.

The 4th Annual Connected Aircraft China Congress is scheduled to be held on April 26th -27th, 2022 in Beijing, China. In May this year, the CAAC released the task list of "Doing Practical things for the People", aiming to enable passengers to enjoy higher quality civil aviation services and enhance their sense of happiness during air travel. Zhang Ruiqing, deputy director of the Air Traffic Control Office of the CAAC, told the media that the speed of the wireless network on aircraft is relatively slow, mainly due to the restrictions of the 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. To fulfill the task, the CAAC will also formulate 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.
