Boeing has announced its plans to reveal the future of air and space travel at the 2018 Farnborough International Airshow in the UK which takes place July 16-22.

 

From hypersonic travel to the future of autonomous flight to manned space flight, Boeing will visually present the innovations that will it says will revolutionise the way humans travel around the world and into space. Boeing will also highlight its award-winning portfolio of commercial and defense products and its broader services business that offers unmatched lifecycle value. This "One Boeing" approach has produced a strong and steady commercial, defense and services order book this year, as the company continues to compete and win across the full spectrum of its capabilities.

"Boeing is leading the drive to innovate and win with the clear vision that 'the future is built here,'" said Chairman, President and CEO Dennis Muilenburg. "We come to Farnborough building on the foundation of an exceptionally consistent and strong year, and do so on the first anniversary of our services business. We are excited to highlight these future technologies as well as our core product offerings with a unique new exhibit that will be open throughout the show."

Visitors can immerse themselves in a large 360-degree theater and board next-generation aircraft through virtual and mixed reality devices. The interactive exhibit showcases Boeing's latest family of aircraft and services, and gives visitors a first look at what the company is developing in its second century of aerospace innovation. The exhibit (P7) will be located opposite Hall 1.

Flying and Static Displays

On the airfield, the 737 MAX 7, which is scheduled to enter service in 2019, will make its air show debut with flying displays from July 16-19. Technology advancements allow the MAX 7 to fly 1,000 nautical miles farther and carry more passengers than its predecessor, the 737-700, while having 18 percent lower fuel costs per seat. 

Boeing's flying display will also include a Biman Bangladesh 787-8 featuring the breakthrough capabilities and innovations that have made the 787 extremely popular with operators and passengers. Since 2011, almost 700 super-efficient Dreamliners have been delivered to operators, flying more than 250 million people while saving an estimated 25 billion pounds of fuel.

Other commercial airplanes on display at the show include an Air Italy 737 MAX 8, a Qatar Airways 777-300ER, CargoLogicAir and Qatar Airways 747-8 Freighters, and a Royal Air Maroc 767 Boeing Converted Freighter, which will be at the Cargo Village from July 16-18. Boeing is also participating in the Cargo Village to showcase its family of freighters and lifecycle commitment through Services.
