Signing off in Singapore

As the Singapore Airshow comes to a close, I got the chance to welcome SilkAir’s brand new 737-800 after it touched down at the show. Decked out in my SilkAir team jersey, it was a special moment to see our customer bring their airplane home before it starts flying to destinations such as Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam, India and the Philippines.

This air show really exceeded my expectations, with more customers, suppliers and media in attendance than ever before. With Asia being at the heart of market growth in the coming years, it’s easy to see why there was so much interest. We look forward to continuing our close relationship with customers in this region and bringing them the best products possible.

I’ll leave you with some photos of our time here in Singapore.

Here’s me with Tim Bader, our communications lead for Asia Pacific. Tim and I both worked on the 747-8 program and couldn’t resist posing next to this great image in the German pavilion.

No trip to Singapore would be complete without some great sushi.

I love airplanes with a colourful and funny livery - just like the Boeing 737 airplanes of Nok Air... some unique liveries are commercials, some look like graffiti, others again feature elements of folklore and of the eldest traditions, some are meant for children and some want to provoke... private jets may have liveries in the Grand Classical Style which is beautiful to me but also funny because an airplane strives to be lighter than a royal palace... airlines must have well recognisable liveries but it is always fun to see such exciting spots like the birds of Nok Air...
