New Delhi: The five-day biennial Aero India 2021 show would be held in Bengaluru from February 3 to 7, the Department of Defence Production announced on April 29.
In a short one line statement, the Defence Exhibition Organisation (DEO) announced that the 13th edition of Aero India will be held at Air Force Station, Yelahanka, Bengaluru. However, no other details were divulged.
In 2019, the five-day air show had quite a rough start, after the collision of Surya Kirans that were rehearsing for the show.
While several global events have seen an indefinite delay in deadlines, the announcement of the dates and location of Aero-India brings a fresh breeze of good boding to many.
“Sufficient time is necessary to arrange the logistics to plan for the event so it was imperative to announce the information and ensuring good participation from companies from many countries. With it being a defence programme, there is also a requirement for inter-governmental coordination. It only goes to show India’s firm decision to plan ahead for one of the most important sectors for India,” said official sources.
