BANGALORE, July 27 (BestGrowthStock) – B/E Aerospace Inc (BEAV.O: ),
the world’s biggest supplier of aircraft interior products,
posted quarterly results above estimates and raised its
full-year outlook as it expects improving air traffic trends to
lead to increased aircraft overhaul activity.

BE Aerospace, whose customers include Boeing Inc (BA.N: ) and
EADS-owned (EAD.PA: ) Airbus, said it expects strong operating
results for 2010 and significant improvements thereafter,
citing continued improvement in global passenger traffic.

U.S. airlines in July posted their strongest second quarter
since 2007, as growth in traffic, particularly from premium
paying business customers, and higher fares contributed to the
brightening prospects.

International travel capacity grew 4.8 percent in May, the
largest jump in nearly two years. The growth in capacity will
lead to an increase in aircraft overhaul activity, B/E Chief
Executive Amin Khoury said on a conference call with analysts.

The company raised its 2010 earnings outlook by 5 cents to
about $1.50 a share. It also forecast 2010 revenue to be about
equal to 2009 revenue of about $1.94 billion, up from its prior
forecast of about $1.90 billion. [ID:nASA00K5V]
For the second quarter, it reported earnings of $37.3 million,
or 37 cents a share, compared with $34.7 million, or 35 cents a
share, in the year-ago period.

Excluding items, it earned 39 cents a share.

Revenue rose 2 percent to $483.9 million. Commercial
aircraft revenue rose 6 percent to $236.4 million.

Analysts on average had expected earnings of 37 cents a
share, before items, on revenue of $476.6 million, for the
quarter, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Shares of the company were down 18 cents at $30.11 in late
morning trade on Nasdaq.
