Airbus sees demand for 1,920 aircraft in the Middle East over the next two decades, worth $347 billion, it said in a statement on Monday.

The figures were part of the planemaker's global market forecast issued in September and are for 2011-2030 period.

Some of Airbus' biggest customers are in the Middle East -- including Emirates airline, the largest buyer of its A380 superjumbo -- and regional carriers appear keen to maintain expansion plans despite slowing global economic growth.
