Singapore Airshow this year will have more than 90 aircraft on display
More than 90 military and commercial aircraft from some 47 countries will be on display at this year's Singapore Airshow which opens at the Changi Exhibition Centre on Tuesday. This is up from 72 aircraft two years ago.
Twenty-two national pavilions displaying flight equipment from their respective countries are also up - first time participants include Hong Kong and Malaysia.
Show organiser Experia Events said at an official media conference on Sunday morning that this year's show is "bigger and better".
Noting that the 40,000 sq m of exhibition space has been fully booked, Experia's managing director Mr Jimmy Lau also said that three exhibitors had even built double decks to accommodate their displays. He also told The Straits Times that more than 45,000, or more than 60 per cent, of the 80,000 public tickets have been sold.
