Posted 19 July 2017 · Add Comment

The Bahrain International Airshow 2018 has confirmed that United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) has been added to its roster of participants after returning from MAKS 2017. At a signing ceremony which took place today, UAC confirmed that all its subsidiary companies would participate in the show including Sukhoi, Ilyushin, Tupolev and Irkut.

Bahrain’s Minister of Transportation and Telecommunications, Engineer Kamal bin Ahmed Mohammed, attended the Russian aviation showcase to meet with a variety of Russian organisations including Rostec, Russian Helicopters, Rosoboronexport, National Space Agency and Roscosmos to discuss their participation in the forthcoming show which takes place from 14th-16th November 2018.

The Bahraini Government is committed to building stronger ties with Russia and working together so that both our countries benefit from the fast growth in Russia and the GCC. Russian businesses have participated at BIAS since the inaugural event and we are delighted to see their continued support.”

Yousif Mahmoud, Head of the Bahrain International Airshow, who was also attending MAKS added, “The Bahrain International Airshow provides the perfect venue to explore business opportunities in Bahrain and the Middle East. Our exceptional civil and military delegation programme means that the event is becoming more and more attractive to companies looking to showcase their aircraft or other technological advances in aviation.


The Bahrain International Airshow will take place from 14th-16th November 2018 and is the fastest growing airshow in the Middle East. While the show has grown, it still retains the unique qualities of its first show in offering an exclusive business environment for high-level business meetings. Its civil and military delegations programme is unparalleled and the exhibition feature hall has allowed even more international businesses to participate in the show. Furthermore, its unique location at the Sakhir Airbase means it can display just about any type of aircraft. With the show still more than a year away, chalet and exhibition space is already 75% sold or reserved.
