Inevitably the European Business Aviation Association (EBACE) Convention & Exhibition has been cancelled due to Covid-19 uncertainty. The event was scheduled to take place in Geneva from 18-20 May.
The organisers plan to replace EBACE with a “virtual programme”. Its sister US event, the National Business Aviation Association (BACE) in October 2020, was also switched to an online format.
The decision marks a blow for an industry that had been weathering the crisis better than the commercial airline sector, with many wealthy private and business travellers continuing to use a mode of transport seen as more discreet and Covid-secure.
There had also been rumours of new aircraft launches this year, including from Dassault.
