SINGAPORE

 

Nearly 80,000 visitors flocked to the Changi Exhibition Centre over the weekend for the Singapore Airshow, with organisers saying the healthy attendance is proof that Singapore is truly an aviation hub.

In a media release sent on Sunday night (Feb 11), Singapore Airshow organisers Experia Events said visitors of different ages from across the world were present to “marvel at the spectacular aerial display performances and the latest commercial and military aircraft”.

“We are heartened to see the overwhelming support and interest in the sixth edition of the Singapore Airshow, as it draws in exhibitors and visitors alike from all around the world,” said Experia Events’ managing director Leck Chet Lam.

“This goes to show that Singapore is an aviation hub not only to the industry, but also aviation fans around the globe.

“We would also like to thank our stakeholders and partners for their unwavering support, and we look forward to making the upcoming Singapore Airshow 2020 even more exciting and engaging.”

The next Singapore Airshow will be held in 2020 from Feb 11 to Feb 16 at the same venue.

On Friday, organisers announced that this year’s Singapore Airshow recorded a more than 10 per cent increase in trade visitors from some 150 countries and regions compared with two years ago.

Over the weekend, visitors were given opportunities to get up close and personal with the wide range of commercial and military aircraft on display at the event.

They were also treated to exhilarating displays of aerobatics, including a death-defying performance by the Republic of Singapore Air Force's integrated aerial display team.

The public were especially thrilled to interact and receive autographs from some of the pilots.

In 2016, the Singapore Airshow also attracted over 80,000 visitors over the weekend.
