Coronavirus scare: Hyderabad aero show restricted to ‘business event’

Hyderabad: Amid the prevailing coronavirus scare, the biennial Hyderabad aero show or ‘Wings India’ event, which was scheduled to begin on March 12 at Begumpet Airport, has now been restricted to a business event. This means that the four-day flagship event of the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) and Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) will not have specific days dedicated for the general public to visit.

The organisers have also disallowed the entry of children under the age of 12 years to the show. Besides, thermal scanners are being installed at the access points at Begumpet Airport as a large number of foreigners are expected to participate in the event.

A tweet from the MoCA read, “Addressing the need of business opportunities, Wings (India2020) will be organising focussed panel discussions on important issues including the impact of COVID-19 on Civil Aviation. State representatives to have interactions with airlines for promoting destinations in one to one meetings.”
