In early March, the Farnborough International Airshow announced that it will no longer hold a public weekend. The change will take effect at the 2020 event, which will thus be staged over just five days, from Monday 20-Friday 24 July next year. The Friday will, however, be open to the public, allowing access to the exhibition halls. This, say the organisers, will place a focus “on inspiring the next generation and showcasing the technologies driving new products and manufacturing processes”. Each of the five trade days, including the Friday, will still see a flying display.
