Today, the organisers of the Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) have announced that because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, they have had to cancel this year's edition of the biennial event, which was due to take place from 20th to 24th July 2020.

In a statement, Farnborough Interntaional Ltd said: 'It is with great regret that we announce the Farnborough International Airshow 2020, due to take place in July, is cancelled.

After very careful consideration, the unprecedented impact of the global Coronavirus pandemic has forced this decision in the interests of the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors, contractors and staff.

This decision was reached taking into consideration several major factors surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19, all of which we have concluded, make it is impossible for us to create and host the Airshow this July.

We understand this news will be an incredible disappointment to all across the international aerospace industry, not to mention our important exhibitors, suppliers and visitors. We at Farnborough International share your disappointment that we are unable to present the Airshow as planned but rest assured, we are determined to continue to work together and will ensure the Farnborough International Airshow  returns in 2022 better than ever. 

It’s important to us that we speak directly to anyone who may have concerns about the Airshow’s cancellation; however, we are a small team and it may take a few days for us to make contact. We appreciate your patience, these are incredibly difficult times but we are absolutely committed to maintaining strong relationships.'
