Paris Air Show to open in Le Bourget France amid concerns for global economic recover in commercial aviation

Click to Enlarge

PARIS, 17 June 2011. The 49th Paris Air Show, which is perhaps the world's largest aviation event of 2011, opens Monday, 20 June, in Le Bourget, France. The event is open for business visitors from 20 to 23 June, and is open to the general public from 24 to 26 June. The event features static displays of some of the world's most advanced commercial and military aircraft and presents a daily flight demonstration of aircraft from around the world.

Sponsors and participants eagerly await the Paris Air Show in odd-numbered years, as well as the Farnborough International Airshow in Farnborough, England, in even-numbered years as a barometer of the global aviation industry's health, based largely on the number of aircraft sold during the show, as well as other aviation-related business conducted in and around the show.


Military & Aerospace Electronics and Avionics Intelligence are collaborating on a daily electronic newsletter called the Paris Air Show Report, which will distribute to qualified subscribers the week of the show. Avionics Intelligence Editor John McHale will be on the ground at the Paris Air Show reporting on the latest and most relevant news of interest to the commercial and military aviation community. Visit the Paris Air Show Report Website to keep up with the latest news from the show.

The 1.4 million square feet of exhibit space at the Paris Air Show sold out to 2,000-plus exhibitors from 42 countries about three months before the show's opening, which was ahead of the event's usual marketing schedule, event planners say.

The Paris Air Show will have 25 buildings and temporary structures; 6,000 to 10,000 people to set up the site as far in advance as six months; equipment from 10,000 trucks; 4,000 telephone lines; nearly 19 miles of optical fiber for communications; and a 11,000-square-foot press center.

The Paris Air Show was created in 1909 at the Grand Palais in Paris, and is the world's oldest aviation exhibition and conference. The last Paris Air Show two years ago had 2,000 international exhibitors; 138,000 trade visitors; 193,000 general public visitors; delegations from 88 countries; and 3,000 journalists from all over the world, show organizers say.
