Show Focus

The Bahrain International Airshow is focused on three core sectors of Aviation; Commercial, Defense and Business/General Aviation. The 2020 show will return with a number of new features that will bring this event to another level.

Commercial Aviation
The Middle East is the only region in the world where the wide-body fleet is larger than the single-aisle fleet. This is just one of many reasons why the Middle East is now considered a major aviation hub.

Defense Military Aviation
is continuing to be an important focus in the Middle East, resulting in increased spending as well as a larger footprint from both local and multi-national companies. With huge advances in military technology and new weapons systems entering the market, visitors to the Bahrain International Airshow can expect to see a significant military presence at the show.

Business/General Aviation Business
Aviation in the Middle East continues to see strong growth with both movements and the number of aircraft registered increasing steadily. The rapidly growing economies of the GCC combined with Bahrain's accelerating BIA expansion are helping to cement business aviation as a cornerstone of the Middle East aerospace industry for years to come.
