AVITAS (US) forecasts more than 24,000 aircraft in service by 2015, up around 25 percent more than current 19,000. Of current 19,000, 35 percent are on operating lease and number expected to grow more than 25 percent to 8,500 in 2015, driven by both new aircraft deliveries as well as sale-leaseback transactions.

EU bans all Mozambique airlines from its airspace after update to blacklist. Also banned are B767s in operation with Air Madagascar due to persisting deficiencies, while all four argo air carriers from Indonesia — Cardig Air, Republic Express, Asia Link and Air Maleo — and one air carrier from Ukraine — UMAir — have been removed from list
