SUBANG, Nov 24 — A total of 43 exhibitors involving local and international companies will be taking part at the Selangor Aviation Show (SAS 2021) starting from tomorrow until Saturday.

Invest Selangor Berhad (Invest Selangor) chief executive officer Dato’ Hasan Azhari Idris said the show, which will be held for the first time at the SkyPark Regional Aviation Centre, here, will showcase 15 aircrafts including private jets, helicopters and light aircrafts.

“Initially, we targeted local companies but the event had also received interest from international companies based in other countries.

“Therefore, we decided to expand the show and are currently preparing for the arrival of the aircrafts, which is expected to arrive today (yesterday) and tomorrow (today),” he said when met at the aviation centre, here yesterday.

Hasan said Invest Selangor is expecting a turnout of some 5,000 people for the inaugural event as the country’s border is still not entirely open.

“The programme will be opened in stages. The first two days will be slated for industry players whereas  the public, especially higher educational institution students, can visit on the last day.

“Entry to the exhibition will also be limited with 500 visitors per hour for crowd control and to avoid violations of the standard operating procedures,” he said.

Themed ‘Selangor, the Asean Business and General Aviation Hub’, SAS 2021 is hosted by the Selangor state government through Invest Selangor.

The programme is also supported by the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade) and the Selangor Darul Ehsan Aerospace Industry Coordination Office (S-Daico).
