Boeing Dreamliner no-show for Dubai Airshow

18 June 2009

The organisers of the Dubai Airshow has confirmed that the much-delayed Boeing 787 Dreamliner will not be making an appearance at the Dubai Airshow in November. Speaking from the Paris Airshow, Alison Weller, Director, Aerospace, Fairs & Exhibitions, told AME Info: 'No we definitely know we won't be seeing a Dreamliner in Dubai in November.' Two years ago the Airbus A380 made its first Middle East appearance at the Dubai Airshow, which also saw orders worth more than $155bn placed. However, Weller commented 'I don't think we be hitting that again'.
