Boeing hopes to fly out 30K planes over next 20 years

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Boeing officials hope to fly out more than 30,000 planes over the next 20 years.

That's the outlook they gave at the Chamber's annual economic outlook conference on Wednesday.

Randy Tinseth, vice president of marketing of Boeing, says over the next 18 to 24 months he hopes the aviation industry will take off by increasing air travel and traffic cargo.

To do so, Tinseth says Boeing will need to build at least three aircrafts a month.

He believes Charleston can compete with the global companies if production remains steady.
