 The biennial showcase for the world of aviation takes place 11 – 17 July 2016 is not only expected to repeat the success of FIA14, but also reach new markets and territories.

 This optimistic outlook is underpinned by an increase in international participation and for the first time Austria, Brazil, Republic of Ireland and South Korea all have dedicated country pavilions, bringing the international pavilions to 22.

China also has its first dedicated pavilion representing a 103% increase in footprint and a 98% increase in spend compared to the 2014 show. German participation has also doubled since 2014.

The show has increased its exhibition space footprint in 2016 from previous years and is over 98% sold out. Chalet space is exceeding expectations and there will be some new looks for Embraer, GE and SAAB to name but a few. Lockheed Martin will unveil their new permanent structure and there will be strong presence from the F-35 team. General Dynamics also make a welcome return to the show.

Other new additions for 2016 include a special Boeing pavilion celebrating their centenary which falls on the Friday of the show.

New exhibitor for 2016, Volga-Dnepr will joining the show by demonstrating their cargo handling capabilities in a dedicated Cargo Village.

The civil and commercial delegations programmes are exceeding expectations with 26 representative groups already confirmed from key and emerging markets. The military delegations programme will see a high level presence from over 45 countries.

Farnborough International Commercial Director, Amanda Stainer, said, “Our latest stats highlight that 2016 Farnborough International Airshow will be another fantastic show. I am looking forward to welcoming our new participants and delegations both international and those from closer to home. The new look chalets and new country pavilions go further to prove that FIA16 is the meeting place for the aerospace industry both for the defence and commercial sectors.”

Amanda went on to say “As well as the F-35 joint fighter strike, we are expecting more aircraft to debut at Farnborough this year. In fact we have more aircraft exhibiting than in recent shows, reflecting an up-beat mood in the industry. We have also significantly grown our first time exhibiter space and have a new dedicated SME lounge. Our meet the buyer programme has also extended by a day, which has been very well received”
