Wuhan coronavirus claims another aviation event
The Wuhan coronavirus that has circled the globe and claimed the lives of more than 500 people, mainly in China, has caused organisers of the Aviation Festival to postpone the event that was originally scheduled to be held on 18-19 February in Singapore. This comes after organisers of the Aviation Leadership Summit cancelled that event outright. The summit was to be held just before the start of the Singapore Airshow. Aviation Festival organisers Terrapinn said in a statement the festival will now be held on 23-24 June in Singapore at the Suntec Convention Centre.
“The well-being of attendees to the Aviation Festival 2020 is of upmost importance to us. We are continuing to monitor the situation in Singapore and will follow guidelines set out by the Ministry of Health in Singapore,” Terrapinn said in announcing the delay.
