January 23, 2018: Boeing is expected to showcase a wide range of products and services during the Singapore Airshow, which is Asia's largest aerospace and defense show, which will be held between February 6 and 11.
The scale of the Boeing's presence at this year's show will reflect its strong growth prospects and opportunities across its commercial, defense and services businesses in the Asia-Pacific region.
"Singapore is a global aviation hub and headquarters for our Southeast Asia operations, where we have enjoyed 70 years of presence and partnership," said Skip Boyce, president of Boeing Southeast Asia.
"As our product line-up and customer requirements continue to evolve, we are confident and committed to delivering enhanced capabilities to our customers while growing our regional presence," said Boyce.
The Asia-Pacific region is Boeing Commercial Airplanes' fastest growing market with a strong demand for both single and twin-aisle airplanes. In addition to models of the 737 MAX and 787 airplanes that have been delivered to numerous customers in the region, the Boeing presence in the Singapore Airshow will also showcase a model of the new 777X now in development and build.
Boeing Defense, Space & Security will have a robust line-up of Boeing and customer products on static display at the show. The Singapore Air Force will display its F-15SG multi-role fighter, CH-47 Chinook and AH-64 Apache helicopters.
The US Department of Defense will exhibit the P-8A Poseidon and the F/A-18 Super Hornet, along with the Integrator unmanned aircraft system from Insitu.
Boeing will also include the Insitu ScanEagle, and the Wave Glider%u2014an ocean surface robot with seabed-to-space autonomous capabilities from Liquid Robotics.
For the first time at the Singapore Airshow, there will be a Boeing Global Services (BGS) exhibit booth. Launched in 2017, BGS is the company's newest business unit, and is poised for growth through innovative services and support for regional commercial and defense systems throughout the entire lifecycle.
Asia-Pacific is an important growth market for the services business with a strong emphasis on engineering, modifications, upgrades, maintenance, Boeing AnalytX, digital services and training. The Boeing Training and Professional Services campus in Changi, Singapore is Boeing's largest pilot, technician and crew training facility in Asia.
