A Year to go until the July 2020 Farnborough International Airshow

A year from today, the July 2020 Farnborough International Airshow takes off, bringing the world’s aerospace community together for a week of major deals, leading-edge innovation and one of the best flying displays on the circuit. 

Remaining exhibition space is severely limited, with the show having broken sales records. It is also set to be the most globally attended Airshow to date, with the highest ever number of international pavilions.

Amanda Stainer, Farnborough International’s Chief Commercial and Partnerships Officer, says: “We’re looking forward to our best-ever Airshow.

“Urban Air is at the heart of the show, with the world’s biggest single showcase of technology and innovation transforming how the world flies. We have a wealth of other show features and highlights, and are creating a flying display that showcases the very best in commercial and military aircraft.” 

In addition to strong sales throughout the show’s exhibition halls, chalet demand has also been high – positive trends that will hopefully translate into strong deal announcements at the show.
