"Middle East airline capacity continues to grow despite decreasing yields due to emergence of low-costcarriers in the region." said Jean-Paul Boutibou, Vice President, Sales, Middle-East and Africa. Right-sizing ofthe fleet will lead to market penetration and profitability in an increasingly competitive Middle East airlinemarket, which will create an equivalent demand for efficient aircraft such as the C Series aircraft."
