I'm doing this because the other thread was locked.

How much governmental assistance is required?
Do countries that have trade ties with Europe and North America get better access to Airbus and Boeing?
If China has such a strong relationship with Africa, then why don't they encourage African airlines to purchase Comac aircraft, Xian MA-60s (except for Air Senegal), etc.

GNP is an old and generally disused term. It has generally been replaced by GDP.

But to answer your question, just because a country has a low GDP per capita, doesn't mean that there are not rich people who will want to fly in that country, and they can afford it.

I would think that they could get loans from the EXIM banks of the respective countries that manufacture airliners. EXIM banks are there to promote exports after all.

Which is why Boeing is all for it - https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa- ... SKBN1JG3KU

It was all explained in the previous thread which was eventually locked, which I had foreseen happening and had stated so in my post on that particular thread.

So far the replies in this thread are very similar to the ones in the other thread.

Was there any need to start a similar thread when the answers and replies are going to be the same as in the other ''locked'' thread!

There is absolutely loads of information online regarding the OP's questions. The forums on Airliners.net are great place to discuss aviation topics but there is a World Wide Web out there where the answers are easily accessible by anyone.

This could well be another short lived thread as the last one started within the last couple of hours concerning the same topic didn't even last six hours before it was eventually locked and rightly so in my opinion.

Let's see how this one play's out!

Weak. GNP is indeed the better measure here because foreign transfers (whether from investments, or just remittances) can create air travel demand and/or buy aircraft.
