Boeing has said it will focus on safety and innovation at the Dubai Airshow next week when it showcases its portfolio of commercial and defence products.

Boeing’s exhibit will feature an interactive display to highlight its latest aircraft and services.

A seating mock-up and virtual reality experience will offer visitors a closer look at the 777X.

On the airfield, a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will demonstrate its capabilities. An Etihad 787-9, Emirates 777-300ER and a Boeing Passenger Air Vehicle (PAV) will be on static display.

The US Department of Defense will display several Boeing platforms at the show, including an F-15E fighter, an MV-22 tiltrotor and a KC-46A tanker. The UAE will showcase a CH-47F Chinook helicopter.

Boeing’s market outlook values the Middle East commercial aeroplane and services market at more than $1.5 trillion over the next 20 years.

Boeing also anticipates 40% of defense and space opportunities in the next decade will originate outside the US, with strong platform and services growth opportunities in the Middle East.
