Singapore Airshow 2024: Returns with a successful first day.



 

The Singapore Airshow 2024 officially began yesterday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony presided over by Minister for Transport and Second Minister of State for Finance, Mr. Chee Hong Tat, and Senior Minister of State for Defence, Mr. Heng Chee How, at the Changi Exhibition Centre. After two scaled-down editions during the Covid Era, Singapore Airshow 2024 is set to host over 1,000 companies from more than 50 countries and regions, making it Asia’s most influential international aerospace and defence event, running from February 20th to February 25th.




On the first day of the Airshow, numerous trade and media visitors flocked to the show grounds, attracting thousands of people to explore the exhibitor booths and static aircraft displays. One notable highlight was the debut of COMAC as an exhibitor, making a significant impact with the announcement of 40 C919 and 10 ARJ21 orders from Tibet Airlines.




Boeing's exhibition booth showcased the 777-9 cabin mock-up, offering visitors a firsthand experience of what it would be like to travel on the new aircraft. During the show, Boeing made announcements regarding Thai Airways and Royal Brunei Airways, revealing orders for 45 and 4 Boeing 787-9 aircraft, respectively.




In addition to Airbus, KAI, ST Engineering, and numerous other exhibitors, the Singapore Airshow 2024 is poised to attract an even larger number of visitors in the days ahead. Additionally, attendees can anticipate trade announcements from various companies, further enhancing Singapore's significance not only as an economic hub but also as a key aviation center in Asia.
