Airshow China featured thousands of exhibits
Cooperation agreements worth $39.8 billion were signed during the 14th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition, a record high in the history of the air show.
The six-day event, also known as Airshow China, featured thousands of online and on-site exhibits brought in by more than 740 businesses from 43 countries and regions, including 121 aircraft and 54 pieces of ground equipment. There were 215,000 visitors to the fair and more than 1.05 billion people watched its live streaming online.
Spectators saw new domestic products, technologies and services that fully demonstrate China's innovative breakthroughs in aerospace and national defence. A 1:1 scale mock-up of a Chinese space station presented by the Chinese Academy of Space Technology was the most popular attraction at the Airshow China-22.
This year's demonstration of flight and ground equipment was more intense. Domestically manufactured aircraft, such as the C919 single-aisle passenger plane and the Y-20 large transport plane, made their first public air appearances.
Some 300 cultural and creative products in five categories, including model aircraft, commemorative badges and stamp albums, were launched at Airshow China's first-ever cultural and creative shop.
Organisers have announced that the 15th Airshow China will take place from 12-17 November 2024 in Zhuhai. This was reported on the official website of the city.
