Paris Air Show 2021 edition is now cancelled due to COVID-19.
For all the aviation lovers out there, there is some sad news. The Paris Air Show which is considered to be the most important show in the world for the aeronautics and space industry has been cancelled for 2021. The show was going to be held from 21st June,2021 to 27th June,2021 at Paris Le-Bourget Airport.
The organisers said that the decision was taken in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as the show attracts approximately 3,20,000 visitors every time. It is the 1st time since World War II that Paris Air Show has been cancelled.
“We are obviously disappointed not to be able to hold the 2021 edition of the Paris Air Show. After many months of all trade show activities being suspended throughout the world, the entire international aerospace and defence community was very much looking forward to being able to meet. We have already started work to ensure that the 2023 edition celebrates the resurgence of the aerospace industry on an international scale.”, said Patrick Daher, Chairman, International Paris Air Show and the Daher Group.
As the Paris Air Show is held every 2 years in pdf years, the next edition will be in 2023; the dates for the same will be announced shortly.
“We would like to extend a huge thank you to all of our partners, exhibitors and service providers for the trust they have placed in us. We share their disappointment, as the Paris Air Show continues to be an extremely popular event, even in periods of crisis. The 2023 edition will be larger than ever and our teams are already working to ensure its success.”, said Gilles Fournier, CEO, International Paris Air Show.
Earlier in the year, the Farnborough International Air Show was also cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
