The Saudi International Airshow 2021 has been postponed until further notice due to the impact of Covid 19. Despite Saudi Arabia’s positive restart in economic growth and the resumption of international flights to the Kingdom, the economic impact of this situation makes it impossible to hold the event on the proposed dates of 16 – 18 February 2021.
The resurgence of the pandemic coupled with the recent lockdowns in several countries within Europe and in the American continent, and the effect of Covid-19 on aviation leading to a worldwide recession in the industry, continue to affect and hinder the safety conditions required to produce and host a successful Saudi International Airshow 2021. The objective of the Saudi International Airshow is to remain a truly international event, whilst offering an equal opportunity to attend to our partners throughout the world.
This difficult decision has been made in the interest of everyone involved. The organisation committee will only proceed with giving you the best of Saudi International Airshow when it is absolutely safe to do so and can ensure the health, safety and security of all attendees and participants.
Not Taken Lightly
The organisation committee was convinced until recently that it would be able to overcome the challenge we’re all facing with Covid-19 and believed the Saudi International Airshow 2021, with the participation of around 500 registered exhibitors, would be able to be held. But in recent days, some cancellations and warning signs from our exhibitors/partners and potential visitors have been received, making it impossible to hold the event next February.
The exhibitors, visitors, and partners involved are currently being informed about the postponement. Although the new dates have not yet been determined, we will keep you informed. We understand it will be an enormous disappointment to all our exhibitors, partners, visitors and suppliers, as it is for us. We now need to take this serious step together and we are currently working with our partners to examine the best options.
We listened to our exhibitors and partners who contributed to the success of the first Saudi International Airshow, and we want to thank our 500 exhibitors and partners who wish to participate in the second edition.
Rest assured, we will ensure the Saudi International Airshow returns stronger than ever.
