Organisers have announced that a further slew of events have been cancelled due to restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. On 4 February, the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) and National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) announced the cancellation of EBACE 2021.
Europe’s largest corporate aviation event had been scheduled to be held at the Palexpo site adjacent to Geneva International Airport from 18 to 20 May. The joint organisers also confirmed that they plan virtual programming to take place during the original show dates.
Just a day later, the NBAA announced that all in-person events will be cancelled through to 30 June. This will affect ABACE, Asia’s largest bizav event, which was due to take place in Shanghai over 13-15 April, and the NBAA Maintenance Conference, which was due to take place in Portland, Oregon, over 11-13 May.
The Helicopter Association International (HAI) has also announced the cancellation of Heli-Expo 2021, which was scheduled to take place in New Orleans over 22-25 March.
On a slightly more positive note, AERO Friedrichshafen, the German general aviation show, has not been cancelled but the dates have been moved back from21-24 April to 14-17 July.
