Bahrain International Airshow 2024 to Spotlight Defense and Security

The Bahrain International Airshow (BIAS) will put defence and security in the spotlight of its 2024 event, taking place 13-15 November.

The last two years has seen Bahrain reinforce relationships with global partners. In September 2023, Bahrain signed the Comprehensive Security Integration and Prosperity Agreement with the US in September last year, which will see enhanced cooperation across a wide range of areas, from defence and security to emerging technology, trade, and investment.

Organised by the Bahrain Ministry of Transportation and Telecommunications and the RBAF in association with Farnborough International, BIAS has been designed to reflect aerospace and defence industry demands, in addition to Bahrain’s exponential development, and will harness global expertise to provide crucial thought leadership and insight.

Marking the country’s drive to establish its position from a regional pioneer to a global contender as part of its 2030 economic vision, the airshow will be highlighting the increased demand for collaboration and innovation across the global defence and security sectors, as part of the conference programme, as well as the exhibition and flying display.

BIAS will also host a static showcase and daily flying displays featuring the latest in both military jets and commercial aircraft. In previous years, the flying display has been filled with the world’s most renowned military aircraft and display teams, with showcases of RBAF Copra Zolo from Bell, Pakistani Air force JF-17, RSAF Typhoon, USAF F-16 demo team, Red Arrows, UAE Al Fursan, Mirage 2000 &F16, Saudi Hawks, and Boeing P-8 Poseidon flypast.
