230,000 visitors at ILA 201426.05.2014
Attracting around 230,000 visitors, ILA 2014 was a big hit with aviation fans: the five-day trade fair with 1,203 exhibitors from 40 countries offered a 30-hour programme of air shows. The ILA took place during glorious weather on 20-25 May 2014 at Berlin ExpoCenter Airport, to the west of Berlin Brandenburg Airport. The air show flights took off on the southern runway of BER – special permission was granted for use of the runway before the opening of the airport.
Highlights of the show included the new Airbus A350 XWB and an Emirates A380. The Breitling Jet Team made its first guest appearance in Germany, and Lufthansa named a new Boeing 747-800 “Niedersachsen”. The ILA CareerCenter and aerospace hall were further popular attractions.
Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH was also represented at the ILA with a booth and provided information about Berlin Brandenburg Airport, Schönefeld and Tegel airports, and jobs and investment opportunities at BER. Photos, videos and background information from the ILA can still be found on the microsite specially set up for the occasion by the airport company:
The next ILA will be taking place from 31 May to 5 June 2016 at Berlin ExpoCenter Airport.
