27 June 2011

Boeing President and CEO Jim Albaugh said composites will play a part in making the next generation of aeroplanes more efficient.

""Airlines today worry about their environmental footprint, fuel efficiency and sustained profitability,"" said Albaugh. ""Our family of ultra-efficient products directly support these customer needs.""

""We are building tomorrow's aeroplanes today and driving value and fuel-efficiency that help our customers compete in the global marketplace. Boeing is taking aggressive action to reduce global warming. It's good for our customers and for passengers, and it's the right thing to do. We're committed to make each generation of aeroplane more efficient by improving aerodynamics, using lighter materials like composites and better engines and making aviation biofuels a priority"" Albaugh continued.
