Defence ministry to host Aero-India in Bengaluru from February 3-5

The defence ministry has taken an in-principle decision to host the next edition of Aero India — considered Asia’s largest aerospace exhibition — in its traditional venue of Bengaluru from February 3-5 next year notwithstanding the coronavirus pandemic, official sources said on Friday.

The ministry took the decision to hold the biennial event as scheduled following inputs from the domestic defence industry and global aerospace majors, they said. The sources said Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has already held a number of internal meetings on hosting the mega event.

“It was decided that the event will be hosted while taking maximum precaution against the coronavirus pandemic,” said a source. Since its inception in 1996, Bengaluru has been hosting the event.
