This news is from Air Transport World online news edition:

The 46th Paris Air Show will be larger than the 2003 event in terms of numbers of exhibitors and will feature both the A380 and the 777-200LR making their first air show appearances, officials confirmed at a briefing in Washington yesterday. According to Paris Air Show Chairman Louis Laport, the seven-day event (trimmed from nine days previously at the request of exhibitors) will bring together almost 1,800 exhibitors from 44 countries compared to 1,728 from 42 countries at the 45th show. Trade days are June 13-16 with the public invited June 17-19. Event organizers are investing €25 million ($32.3 million) through 2007 to improve road access and infrastructure at Le Bourget, including the new Hall 5 opening this year. The A380 is expected to fly during the show; Boeing traditionally does not participate in the flying display. Also on hand among commercial transports will be the A318, A340-600, 747-400ERF, Embraer 195 and ERJ-145 as well as the Bombardier CRJ900 and Q400 and the ATR 72-500. The Antonov 225 may put in an appearance as well. In total, "more than 200 aircraft" will be on exhibit compared with 202 in 2003.

Anyone know the website for the show?

Another thing I do want to know, why doesnt Boeing participate in the flying display. Every airshow I've been to I havn't seen 1 flying boeing. Is it cost?

1) that website is pretty darn crappy
2) can we expect to see the A380 during the public days, or just during the week?



All the things you probably hate about travelling are warm reminders that I'm home

I will refrain from flying, so as not to ruin the hopes Airbus and Boeing's product lines in one fell swoop, by being so much better !  Smile

Does anybody know if Saturday is a good day at the show?
Who knows if the displays are the same during all three days of the public opening or maybe the program will be different?

Thanks

One thing is for sure, it will be damned crowded on Saturday because it is the first public day on a weekend. I will also be there on Saturday, when I had known earlier that I will get a press pass, I had definitely booked my flight to Paris on another day, unfortunately I can't change the date anymore because I booked a cheapo non-flexible Eco tix.

By the way, there will be a big A.net meeting at the show on Saturday:

I'm considering taking a trip out for the Paris Air Show, but does anyone know if it's going to be English-Speaking-People friendly? I only know a few words in French. I have a good friend who's extremely fluent in French, but she's not very interested in aviation..


Thanks

Josh

I think it is no problem when you don't speak French, I can't speak French as well but I am sure that the show will be great.

Don't bet on the public days! Airbus has stated before and stated it yesterday, the A380 won't be in Paris for the whole duration of the show.

Cheers!
