Morocco to host business aviation expo

The city of Marrakech will host the second edition of the Middle East and North Africa Business Aviation Association (MEBAA) business air show on September 12 and 13 at the citys Menara airport.

The two-day event will gather 61 exhibitors from different countries across the world, including France, Djibouti, and the United Arab of Emirates.

The show aims to highlight the importance of business aviation in both Morocco and the African continent. It will feature a static display of the latest business aircraft, including a Gulfstream G550 and aircraft from Bombardier, according to a press release issued by the organisers.

Two-thousand five-hundred visitors are expected to be in attendance at the show. The event will also bring together international air industry giants and sponsors, including Bombardier, Boeing Business Jets, and Gulfstream.

The MEBAA Show Morocco 2017 is the second edition of the event. The inaugural edition took place in Casablanca in 2015, with the move to Marrakech this year offering great opportunities for exhibitors and sponsors, the report said.
