SINGAPORE, 16 February 2020 – Over the course of the week, the 7th edition of Singapore Airshow 2020 welcomed close to 30,000 trade visitors from more than 110 countries and over 20,000 public visitors at the Changi Exhibition Centre from 11 – 16 February 2020.
Over the two public days from 15 – 16 February, visitors enjoyed a total of four display performances from three countries that included the Republic of Singapore Air Force’s aerial display team consisting of an F-15SG fighter jet and two AH-64D attack helicopters, China’s People’s Liberation Army Air Force aerobatics team Ba Yi, the United States Marine Corps’ F-35B Joint Strike Fighter, and the United States Pacific Air Forces’ F-22 Raptor. The United States Air Force’s B-52 Stratofortress also performed a flyover on 15 February.
“Despite current global concerns surrounding COVID-19, we are encouraged with solid support from over 930 participating countries from more than 45 countries. The presence of over 90% of participating companies at Singapore Airshow 2020 is a clear testimony of the platform’s strategic relevance in the global aviation and defence ecosystem,” said Mr Leck Chet Lam, Managing Director, Experia Events Pte Ltd, organiser of Singapore Airshow.
As one of its precautionary measures to ensure well-being and safety of all attendees, Singapore Airshow 2020 had scaled down sale of public day tickets by more than half. “The public’s interest and presence are a vote of confidence in the slew of precautionary measures that we have implemented to safeguard their well-being and safety. We are glad to close Singapore Airshow 2020 on an optimistic note, and will continue to stand in solidarity with all our stakeholders in the aviation and defence industries as we weather this challenging period. I am confident we will emerge even stronger and continue to deliver a more robust Singapore Airshow 2022 that facilitates the transformation and growth of Asia’s aviation and defence industries,” added Mr Leck.
The 8th edition of Singapore Airshow 2022 will be from 15 – 20 February 2022, at the Changi Exhibition Centre.
