SINGAPORE Feb 3 (Reuters) - Europe's aerospace giant Airbus said on Wednesday it sees a recovery in global traffic volume in 2010, saying the global economy has already recovered from a recession.

"Everybody was talking about recession... but we actually think we are coming out the other side," Airbus sales chief John Leahy told reporters at the Singapore Airshow.

A drop in global passenger demand led Airbus, a unit of Aerospace and Defense giant EADS EAD.PA, and rival Boeing (BA.N: Cotización) face their worst annual orders last year in at least 15 years.
