Medyacity launch new Turkish airshow with Farnborough International

Posted 12 July 2016 · Add Comment

The Farnborough International Airshow today saw the launch of a brand new Airshow to take place in Turkey.

Eurasia Airshow will take place from April 25-28,  2018 in Antalya in Turkey and will create a new business platform for the aerospace industry in the region. 

Organised by Medyacity under the guidance and consultancy of Farnborough International’s Airshows business and with the support of the Turkish Government, the show will seek to consolidate the business opportunities for the civil, commercial and defence aerospace markets in the Eurasian economic region.

The event will comprise a three day trade exhibition followed by a one day public show and will seek to attract up to 1000 exhibiting companies plus extensive flying display. Antalya Airport was chosen as the preferred location for the event as the airfield would be large enough to accommodate commercial and military that the show hopes to attract, something that Istanbul for example isn’t able to accommodate.

Speaking about the location, Farnborough International CEO, Shaun Ormrod said, “There has been a tremendous amount of investment by the civil aviation and airport industries in the Eurasian regions, particularly in Turkey.  The Eurasia Airshow will allow the aerospace industry to grow and develop further in the region.”

Hakan Kurt from Medyacity added, “The aerospace industry in Eurasian countries is growing exponentially. There are more than 500 civil aviation companies now in Turkey with more aircraft flying to over 200 destinations every day, particularly Turkish Airlines. Furthermore, Turkey is developing its own civil and defense aircraft and the Turkish Air Force will soon be receiving the F-35 later this year. The knowledge and experience of the Farnborough International team alongside our local event organising expertise will go a long way to making the show a success.
