After much speculation, one of the biggest air shows, Aero India, will be held in Bengaluru. The 2019 edition of Aero India will be held yet again at Yelhanka Air Force Station.

Earlier there were talks that the Aero India venue could be shifted to Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. This rumor drew much criticism from political parties and enthusiasts alike. The clarification gave relief to many people, including vendors.

“The government has decided to hold the Aero India 2019 in Bengaluru. The five-day event will combine a major trade exhibition for the aerospace and defence industries with public air shows. Besides global leaders and big investors in the aerospace industry, the show will also see participation by think-tanks from across the world,” the Ministry of Defense said in a statement.

Aero India is the biggest air show hosted by India, which includes participants from various countries and showcases their various requirements for military and commercial aviation use. Also, the air show includes the various aerial display of multiple aircraft and helicopters.
