Aero India 2021 — world’s first ‘hybrid’ air show takes flight in Bengaluru this week

New Delhi: The world’s first ‘hybrid’ air show – Aero India – is set to be organised in Bengaluru from 3 to 5 February.

“This is the first-of-its-kind hybrid air show. This means that while people can attend the show in person, those who can’t make it due to Covid restrictions in their countries can attend it digitally,” a senior defence ministry official explained to ThePrint.

Sources explained that strict Covid protocols have been implemented, and those entering the exhibition will have to show a negative RT-PCR test taken on or after 31 January. 

Aero India will see the participation of top aviation firms, while India will showcase its indigenous defence capability, with an eye on Africa and the Indian Ocean Region (IOR) for the export of fighter jets, helicopters and missiles.

Apart from global aviation giants such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Dassault and Airbus, the show will also see the participation of top defence firms involved in the aviation sector including Thales, BAE Systems and missile manufacturer MBDA.
