Farnborough Airshow 2022 : What to Expect?

In just a couple of hours, Farnborough Airshow 2022 (FIA2022) will commence. FIA is one of the largest air shows in the world, with over 80,000 participants expected to attend this year. Since COVID-19 restrictions are almost non-existent nowadays, it could be possible that even more people than expected could attend!

What Is the Farnborough Airshow?

For decades, the Farnborough International Airshow has been the global platform for the aerospace and defence industry. This year, its role will carry even greater significance, with FIA2022 serving as the first major event to reconnect colleagues from around the world, enabling business growth and recovery.

A huge amount will have changed in the three years since we last brought the industry together; however, FIA2022 will be a strategic opportunity to witness the leaps in development that have taken place as well as showcasing innovation to a truly global audience, face-to-face.
