Honeywell Aerospace has become the latest international company to pull out of the 2020 Singapore Airshow. The company’s representatives said in a statement that “out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our employees, Honeywell today made the difficult decision to cancel our participation in the Singapore Airshow. This stems from the Singapore Ministry of Health’s announcement that it is raising the Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) to Orange and its recommendation to cancel or defer large-scale events or gatherings. We look forward to working with customers and clients in the region in the coming year and to attending the next Singapore Airshow.”

Honeywell’s withdrawal is the latest of dozens of companies that have pulled out of the airshow despite the decision by organisers Experia Events to go ahead with the event and despite the recommendation by Singapore’s government that “large-scale events be cancelled or deferred”. Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Gulfstream and many other companies have also pulled out of the show due to the global spread of the Wuhan coronavirus.
