Boeing in Southeast Asia

Boeing’s longstanding partnership with Southeast Asia dates back to the 1940s when the region’s overall aviation industry was still in its infancy. Throughout the years, Boeing has played a vital role in the development of the region’s aerospace capabilities in the commercial, defense and services sectors.

Key markets where Boeing has a strong business footprint in the region include Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Brunei and the Philippines. Singapore is Boeing’s Southeast Asia headquarters, where operations range from commercial aircraft and defense procurement, services support and training to advanced research collaboration with the public and private sectors.

Boeing continues to invest in Southeast Asia, which remains one of the fastest-growing markets in aviation. Boeing's Commercial Market Outlook (CMO) forecasts that rising air travel will see the airplane fleet in Southeast Asia growing five percent by 2040, resulting in the demand for more than 4400 new airplanes valued at $700 billion. Tied to economic and fleet growth, demand for maintenance, repair, overhaul and modifications account for a majority of projected commercial aviation services demand.
