Singapore Airshow
Asia's biggest for Aviation's Finest

The Singapore Airshow, among the world's Top 3 aviation events, is the largest aerospace and defence event in Asia.

Singapore Airshow serves as a global marketplace and networking powerhouse for the world’s aviation community and has always been greeted with tremendous support from industry players, solidly maintaining its position as Asia’s largest and top three aerospace and defence events in the world.

It continues to be the only event of its kind that brings together heads of the international aviation community, including key political and military leaders. For 2010, the Airshow again closed on a high note with deals and announcements worth about US$10 billion in spite of a recovering economy.

Singapore Airshow also features a series of high-level conferences dedicated to leading players in the global aviation industry - the Singapore Airshow Aviation Leadership Summit (ALS), the Asia-Pacific Security Conference, Unmanned Systems Conference and the Land Defence Conference.


Sky-high Thrills For The Weekend

In its full glory, the Singapore Airshow is not all business and no play. The final weekend of the 6-day event will be open to public. Young and old, aviation enthusiasts and anyone who enjoys a day of adrenaline-pumping revelry under the sun will make it a must-watch. From masterful aerobatic flying displays to the excitement of fun fairground attractions, food, and collectables, the Singapore Airshow has the makings of a new calendar highlight that will give families and friends a weekend of fun.

Japan Airlines (JAL) has announced that it will deploy its Dreamliner aircraft on its Singapore flights from September this year.

The Boeing B787 aircraft will be used to operate the carrier’s daily service to the Lion City from both Narita and Haneda airports in Tokyo.

From October 28, JAL will also up the frequency of Singapore flights with one additional daily service on the Narita-Singapore route, which will also be serviced by the Dreamliner. The flight will depart Narita at 1755, arriving in Singapore at 0025. The return leg is scheduled to take off at 0140, arriving back in Tokyo at 0925.

As a result, the carrier will then be flying to Singapore 21 times a week, up from the current 14 times.

As previously reported, the carrier will also use the Dreamliner to operate flights to New Delhi, Moscow, Beijing and the new Boston route.

The Smokey Bandits to soar in Singapore skies
Monday, January 30, 2012 - 18:38
by Cynthia Blemin

KUALA LUMPUR: For the first time in its 53 years history, the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) will be sending an aerobatics team to the Singapore Airshow.

Popularly known as "The Smokey Bandits", the flight of MiG-29N aircrafts from No 17 Squadron base in Kuantan has been invited by their Singapore counterpart to showcase their flying maneuvers at the airshow to be held at the Changi Exhibition Centre between Feb 14 and 19.

The Malaysian Armed Forces and Singapore Armed Forces (RSAF) have regularly engaged in bilateral and multilateral exercises in the past but this is the first time the RMAF MiG29s will be deployed to the neighbouring island.

A press statement issued by RMAF said "RSAF have in the last two series of Lima, sent their fighters and helicopters to perform in Langkawi. The RMAF also feels it is high time we returned the favour to our southern neighbours."

The five-men aerobatic team will be led by commanding officer Lt Col Mior Nor Badrishah Mohamad, callsign "Ghost", head of training Capt Mohd Azizi Musa "Skinner", executive officer Maj Razali Ahmad Jumali "Vendor", squadron safety officer Maj Nasruddin Khalid "Digi" and standards officer Maj Azri Ahmad "Adiq".

The team travels with a total of 31 engineering technical specialists have performed on numerous occasions at the bi-annual Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Exhibitions held over the years and the Brunei Defense Exposition 2011 (Bridex 2011).

Audience at the airshow can look forward to maneuvers done in formation and solo displays, which will be performed in unison to ensure a compact and thrilling sequence.

The term ‘smokey bandit’ was originally coined by visiting foreign air force pilots in reference to the black cloud of smoke generated by the MiG29’s Klimov RD33-3 engines when operating in full military thrust.

In 1997, the RMAF’s MiG-29 squadron made its first appearance in the Langkawi International Maritime and Air Show (Lima 97) in Malaysia and has since become the main attraction at Lima air shows.

The squadron was recently crowned Squadron of the Year 2011 by the Royal Malaysian Air Force and received the 2011 Malaysian Armed Forces Readiness Award.

Singapore Air Show revs up

By Greg Waldron on January 31, 2012 3:23 PM

Spotted some Singapore Air Show posters at Changi Airport MRT station. Quite like the clever 'Top Fun' movie theme they've adopted for the show, although those two Leopard II tanks look as if they are about to run down that family.

Also checked the Air Show web site and so far there is no indication that the two F-22s shown in the poster will be performing a flying display. The F-35 is listed on static, but don't be fooled: it will likely be the 1:1 model version that Lockheed trots out for air shows. My colleague Firdaus (@fhavg) just told me that SIA's last Boeing 747-400 will be on static at the show. That's cool.

Flightglobal will have a big team at the show and a stand as well. We'll be writing plenty of stories for the web site, as well producing an interactive daily. Also keep your eyes out for our show report on Thursday with all the big and small stories from the show.

Have a story idea? Feel free to swing by and tell us about it.

Boeing 787 Dreamliner Debuts In Bangkok For Dream Tour

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 9 (Bernama) -- Boeing's new mid-size passenger airplane, the 787 Dreamliner, touched down in Thailand after demonstrating its long-range capabilities by flying nonstop from Seattle's Boeing Field to Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi International Airport -- a distance of 7,679 miles (12,358 km).

The visit is part of Boeing's Dream Tour.

"We are delighted to say 'yindee tonrup' (welcome) to Boeing's 787 Dreamliner on its first visit to Southeast Asia," Thai Airways International (THAI) President Piyasvasti Amranand said in a statement Thursday.

"This airplane will provide an unparalleled and innovative physical flying experience to our passengers. Coupling that with our acclaimed 'Touches of Thai' onboard service will provide our guests with an unbeatable travel experience."

THAI, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Thailand, is among more than 50 of the world's top airlines that will fly the Dreamliner. The airline's first eight 787's are being leased from International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC).

Meanwhile, Boeing Southeast Asia President Ralph (Skip) Boyce, who watched the 787 land in Bangkok said:

"Boeing is honoured that Thai Airways International will be flying the Dreamliner.

"We're glad it's visiting Bangkok so Prime Minister Yingluck, THAI President Piyasvasti, his pilots and other THAI team members can experience this remarkable airplane firsthand."

Also in Bangkok was Ray Conner, Senior Vice President of Sales and Customer Support for Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

Speaking from Suvarnabhumi International Airport, he noted that more than 800 787s are on order, calling that "a testament to the airplane's unique capabilities."

"As a result of its innovative new technologies, the 787 Dreamliner offers unmatched operating economics, fuel efficiency and passenger comfort," Conner added.

"It is truly an airplane of the 21st century, providing better environmental performance in addition to an outstanding flying experience for passengers and airlines alike. We look forward to demonstrating the airplane's capabilities to the THAI team."

During its three-day stay in Thailand, the Dreamliner will be on display for invited media and guests to tour the aircraft interior.

The next day there will be a one-hour demo flight from Bangkok to Chiang Mai carrying THAI executives and special aviation guests before returning to Bangkok.

On Saturday, the 787 will depart for the Singapore Airshow where it will be on static display.

The Dream Tour airplane, test plane ZA003, is outfitted with the 787's special cabin features including a welcoming entryway, dramatically larger dimmable windows, bigger bins and dynamic LED lighting.

The airplane is configured with a luxurious business-class cabin, an overhead crew rest compartment and an economy class section.

The 787 is the first new type of passenger airplane of the 21st century and the first made from composite materials. The Dreamliner is the first mid-size passenger airplane capable of flying long-range routes, thus creating the potential for flying nonstop to many more distant cities without having to go through a hub airport.

Aviation enthusiasts can follow the progress of the 787 tour at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Videos, photos and reports from the tour stops as well as an inside look at the airplane are featured on the website.

SIA To Display Boeing 747-400 At Singapore Airshow 2012


“The B747 was the flagship aircraft in SIA’s fleet for nearly four decades, serving us through much of our history, and it is only fitting that we mark its retirement in a special way.”

Executive Vice President Commercial, Mr Mak Swee Wah
10 February 2012 - Singapore Airlines will be displaying one of three remaining Boeing 747-400s at the upcoming Singapore Airshow 2012, marking the launch of a series of events to commemorate the retirement of its B747 fleet after nearly 40 years of service.


Aircraft ‘9V-SPQ’, which was the last B747-400 delivered to SIA in 2001, will be on static display at the Airshow over 17-19 February 2012.

More than 1,000 members of the public will be invited for guided tours of the aircraft’s cabin on 18 and 19 February. The scheduled tours will showcase the B747’s history with the Airline and the innovative products that were introduced during its time in service. A limited number of specially created boarding passes will be distributed to Airshow visitors for the tours on a first-come, first-served basis.

A series of events commemorating the B747’s many years of service with SIA will also be announced at the Airshow next week.

“The B747 was the flagship aircraft in SIA’s fleet for nearly four decades, serving us through much of our history, and it is only fitting that we mark its retirement in a special way,” said SIA’s Executive Vice President Commercial, Mr Mak Swee Wah.

“The Airshow is an ideal venue for us to begin the countdown to the B747’s retirement, by involving the community and demonstrating how the aircraft has benefited SIA over the years.”

The B747-400 is scheduled to operate its last commercial flight to Melbourne on 24 March 2012, returning to Singapore on 25 March 2012. An additional commemorative flight is also being considered and details will be announced once plans are firmed up.

Background information

Singapore Airlines took delivery of its first B747-200 in 1973. Ten years later, the Airline received its first B747-300 BIGTOP, which enabled SIA to fly non-stop from London to Singapore in 1984. SIA’s first B747-400, also known then as the MEGATOP, arrived in 1989, enabling the Airline to launch non-stop daily services between Singapore and London. In 1994, SIA took delivery of its 23rd B747-400, making the Airline the largest B747-400 operator in the world. By 2003 the SIA Group had a record 51 B747s, comprising 39 B747-400s and 12 B747-400 Freighters. Three B747-400 passenger aircraft remain in service today, while SIA Cargo operates 13 B747-400 Freighters.

Boeing 787 Dreamliner lands in Singapore for first time


SINGAPORE: The Boeing 787 Dreamliner landed in Singapore for the first time on Saturday, ahead of the Singapore Airshow, where it will be featured.

The fuel-efficient aircraft, recognisable for its raked wing-tips, touched down at Changi Airport on Saturday afternoon.

The new mid-size passenger airplane flew in from Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi International Airport, and will be on static display at the Singapore Airshow, from 14 to 19 February.

It is capable of flying non-stop making it appealing for passengers who want to avoid hub airports as well as airlines who can establish long-haul routes without a Jumbo jet, which usually needs many more passengers to be profitable.

Singapore Airlines has ordered 20 of these planes.

The Dreamliner is now on a six-month "Dream Tour" around the world, so that customers and partners can experience the jet first hand.

The 787, the first new airplane type of the 21st century, has garnered more than 800 orders from airlines around the globe.

The Dream Tour airplane, test plane ZA003, is outfitted with the 787's special cabin features including a welcoming entryway, dramatically larger dimmable windows, bigger bins and dynamic LED lighting.

The airplane is configured with a luxurious business-class cabin, an overhead crew rest compartment and an economy class section.

Crowds flock to Singapore Airshow


SINGAPORE: The week-long Singapore Airshow has opened its doors on Saturday to the public and thousands of aviation enthusiasts from the world over, came in droves to the event site at the Changi Exhibition Centre.

As early as 8am, visitors hopped onto shuttle buses at Changi Airport to make their way to the airshow.

Despite the rain and scorching heat on Saturday, the event site was bustling with activity.

The aerial display -- which featured death-defying stunts by fighter pilots and graceful commercial aircrafts -- was a crowd pleaser.

One visitor said: "The biggest draw is being able to see different types of aircraft - the military ones, from RSAF, as well as all the commercial ones, and the 787 that just went by. In Singapore, you don't have that many airshows, so this is an eye-opener."

One boy said: "I just like the planes while they are flying and how the smoke comes out."

"I like it when the planes go round and round and do all the tricks," said another boy.

Snaking queues at the Boeing F-15 SG Eagle is testament that it was certainly a crowd favourite.

This is the first time the Republic of Singapore Air Force is fielding this aircraft which is equipped with technological updates and is one of the most capable and lethal aircraft in the world.

Organisers said they expect some 100,000 people to visit the airshow for the two days it's open to the public.

They added that tickets at SISTIC for Sunday are sold out, but limited tickets are available on site at S$30 for adults and S$15 for children.

Singapore Airshow 2012 Attracts Record Visitors To Biggest Edition Ever

SINGAPORE, Feb 19 (Bernama) -- Singapore Airshow, Asia's largest and one of the three most important aerospace and defence exhibitions in the world, drew a record number of trade and public visitors at this year's edition of the biennial event.

Over the six-day show from Feb 14 till today, Singapore Airshow 2012 welcomed some 145,000 visitors from 128 countries.

The event also played host to the largest ever number of top level delegations, with 266 from over 80 countries.

Jimmy Lau, Managing Director of Experia Events, organiser of event, said: "Singapore Airshow 2012 has been a success for everyone. We have set a new record for the value of deals announced, as well as the number of visitors on both trade and public days.

"As a testament to the show's achievements, over 70 percent of exhibitors had already reaffirmed their commitment to take up exhibition space in 2014. We are looking forward to the next show and hope to deliver a more enhanced experience in 2014.

Tickets for the public day weekend over Saturday and today, were completely sold out, and Changi Exhibition Centre, the Airshow site, saw some 100,000 visitors over the two days, swamping the grounds where they were treated to breathtaking aerial displays and had the opportunity to view an impressive array of aircraft in static display.

The aerial display included show-stopping performances from Singapore Air Force (RSAF), the Royal Malaysian Air Force "Smokey Bandits", the United States Air Force and the Royal Australian Air Force "Roulettes".

Australian pilot Tony Blair of Blair Aerosports also made his debut in the first stunt aerobatic performance in the history of airshows in Singapore.

In addition, visitors had a chance to interact with the aerial display pilots in person during autograph and photo-taking sessions.

Singapore Airlines also hosted guided tours on one of their last three remaining Boeing 747-400s, which was here at Singapore Airshow to commemorate the retirement of its B747 fleet.

Singapore Airshow Wraps Up Trade With Record Deals Of Over US$31 Billion

SINGAPORE, Feb 17 (Bernama) -- Singapore Airshow 2012, Asia s largest and one of the three most important aerospace and defence exhibitions in the world, wrapped up the trade segment of the six-day event with a record value of deals announced worth over US$31 billion.

This represented a threefold increase over the value announced in 2010 with major transactions including contracts for Boeing, Airbus, Pratt & Whitney, CFM and ATR.

Over the last four days, the airshow played host to some 900 exhibitors from 50 countries and 266 delegations from 80 countries who flew into Singapore to network, establish partnerships and forge new deals.

In all, some 38,000 trade visitors from 119 countries visited the show during the first three trade days, compared to some 35,000 in 2010.

Of these, over 30 per cent were from overseas.

Some 70 per cent of exhibitors at this year's event have already confirmed plans to exhibit at the next airshow in 2014, the organisers of the event said.

Expressing delight that this year's trade deals worth surpassed the US$10 billion worth of deals announced in 2010, Jimmy Lau, Managing Director of Experia Events, the organiser of the event, said this further reaffirmed Singapore Airshow s position as the platform of choice for aviation industry representatives from around the world to reach their key markets, especially the emerging markets in Asia.

Katy Padgett, Manager, Communications, Pratt & Whitney, said her company was pleased their experience at the Singapore Airshow.

"It continues to be a great platform for us to reach out to the aviation community in the Asia Pacific region.

Senior Government spokesman for UKTI's Defence and Security Sector, Adam Thomas said the event was an important opportunity for UK companies in the aerospace and defence sectors to promote their capabilities and identify potential joint venture opportunities.

Lau said the organisers were looking forward to delivering an even better experience for exhibitors and visitors at the next event to be held at the Changi Exhibition Centre in February 2014.
