From 21st to 23rd of June Hi Fly´s A380 was one of the stars during the flying display of the Paris Air Show 2019 season, stealing the show and delighting the visitors, who had the opportunity to watch a high quality performance of flight capabilities of the largest commercial aircraft in the world. These displays, which are always spectacular and often amazing, are one of the show’s high points, giving exhibitors the opportunity to showcase their technological expertise and allowing visitors to discover the latest innovations.
The 53rd Show took place at the Le Bourget Parc des Expositions and once again brought together all the players in this global industry around the latest technological innovations. The Paris Air Show continues to be the world’s largest aerospace event, involving 2,400 exhibitors from 50 countries, 350,000 visitors, 300 top level delegations and 3,000 journalists.
Raising awareness on Coral Reefs
The flying displays were also way of supporting the Mirpuri Foundation campaign “Save the Coral Reefs”, as the A380 is painted with a special-themed livery, aiming to reinforce worldwide the message of sustainability and protection of the seas.
The aircraft is painted differently on both sides, one side in dark blue displaying destroyed corals contrasting with a light blue side representing a pristine ocean with colourful and healthy marine life.
With this initiative, Hi Fly is raising awareness for this unprecedented campaign to fight the destruction of coral reefs. If no action is taken, these beautiful ecosystems will disappear by 2050. With 50% of the world’s corals already gone, action needs to be taken immediately and awareness is the first step.
