The only live and in-person aerospace event taking place in 2021, the Dubai Airshow 2021 launched today, 14 to 18 November at Dubai World Central (DWC) in the United Arab Emirates.
The aerospace event features more than 1,200 exhibitors, representatives from 148 countries, more than 80 start-ups, decision makers in attendance and over 20 country pavilions.
The event also features some static display park & flying display activities including the world’s most advanced aircraft on ground and in air. Over 160 aircraft will be on display from top international aerospace leaders.
Participating at the Dubai Airshow 2021 is Uganda Airlines Airbus A330-800neo (new engine option) which took time out from its airline schedule to appear at the Dubai Airshow.
The carrier has just begun flying its first long-haul international services, with Dubai the initial destination on October 4 when the airline flew its first widebody international flight.
The A330neo 5X-NIL—the aircraft on display at the Dubai Airshow—arrived in Dubai from Entebbe to launch a three-times-weekly service which it then increased to 4X weekly on November 3.
Powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 7000s, the aircraft is configured with 20 business, 28 premium economy, and 213 economy seats in the latest Airspace cabin interior.
The airline eyes London, Mumbai, and Guangzhou flights to its increasing long-haul network, reflecting the routes that Uganda regards as the most important to its international trade and inward investment.
In addition, Uganda Airlines plans to introduce a loyalty program beginning next month.
The 2021 Dubai Air Show promises to be an opportunity to discover the latest and most innovative international aerospace solutions.
