Despite the strict travel restrictions in Singapore, the Singapore Airshow will start on February 15. The three-day aviation exhibition is much smaller than before and only trade visitors are welcome, provided they meet strict health requirements. The general public needs a live stream.
During the Singapore Airshow, eight flight demos and flypasts from four air forces and two commercial companies will be shown, the organization announced Monday. Airbus will present its A350-1000 in Singapore, while Boeing will give a demo with the 777-9. The latter aircraft has now arrived at Changi Airport.
A total of 360 aviation companies will be present as exhibitors at the Singapore Airshow next week. That is much less than at the 2020 edition, when 930 companies were still present.
Even then, the biennial aviation exhibition already fully noticed the consequences of the corona pandemic, which had recently broken out in China. At least seventy exhibitors canceled their participation at the last minute. The number of visitors was 44 percent lower than in 2018.
