Boeing recently announced that the international debut of its new 777X widebody jet will take place at the 2021 Dubai Airshow, to be held November 14 to 20. Boeing will also showcase its commercial, defense, and service products, including the ecoDemonstrator 737-9, an Etihad Airways 787-10 Dreamliner, a flydubai 737 MAX 9, a KC-46A Pegasus, a P-8 Poseidon, and an MV-22 Osprey.

About The Exhibit

A Boeing 777-9 flight test aircraft will participate in the air show’s flying program and appear in Boeing’s static display. Boeing says the 777-9 will be the world’s largest and most efficient twin-engine jet with 10% improvements in fuel economy, exhaust emissions, and operating costs vs. competing jets. Also on the static display will be the 2021 Boeing ecoDemonstrator, an Alaska Airlines 737-9 that is flight testing approximately 20 technologies aimed at reducing fuel consumption, emissions, and noise, as well as improving safety. The aircraft manufacturer will also discuss its parts, modifications, digital, sustainment, and training solutions, including an expansive global supply chain, maintenance, and logistics network.

In addition, Boeing’s exhibit will highlight the manufacturer’s defense products, including the F-15EX Eagle II fighter jet, the T-7A Advanced Pilot Training System, and its Autonomous Systems portfolio, which includes the Boeing Airpower Teaming System and the Insitu Integrator ER and ScanEagle unmanned systems. Operational defense aircraft that will be showcased include the MV-22 Osprey, KC-46A Pegasus, P-8A Poseidon, C-17 Globemaster III, AH-64 Apache, and CH-47F Chinook.

Boeing collaborations will be on display, as well. Etihad Airways will have a 787-10 Dreamliner as an example of sustainable aviation. Etihad has been researching and testing technologies, products, and practices on its fleet of 787s to further reduce carbon emissions. The region’s largest 737 operator, flydubai, will have a 737 MAX 9 at the air show that reduces fuel use and emissions by 14% compared to predecessors.

An Important Industry

"Boeing is excited to participate fully in the Dubai Airshow, the first global air show in almost two years, and to be able to engage directly with customers, partners, suppliers and other stakeholders from the region and beyond," says Kuljit Ghata-Aura, president of Boeing Middle East, Turkey, and Africa.
