De Havilland Canada and Viking Air won’t attend Singapore Airshow 2020 over coronavirus fears

In light of the increased alert level announced today by the Singapore Government and Ministry of Health due to incidents of Coronavirus in Singapore, Longview Aviation Capital has elected to cancel the participation of its subsidiary companies, De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Limited and Viking Air Ltd. in the 2020 Singapore Airshow scheduled to be held from February 11th to 16th, 2020.

Earlier today, Minister Lawrence Wong, Co-Chair of the Multi-Ministry Taskforce
on Novel Coronavirus in Singapore, issued a
statement advising that the government of Singapore
has increased the Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) level
from Yellow to Orange, and recommended that all large-scale events be canceled
or deferred.

Based on this recommendation,
and out of an abundance of caution for the well-being of our employees, De
Havilland Canada and Viking will not be in attendance at the 2020 Singapore
Airshow as previously planned.  In addition, De Havilland Canada media
briefings scheduled for 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday,
February 11 and 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February
12th are cancelled.

Longview Aviation apologizes
for any inconvenience this may cause our customers, suppliers, and
stakeholders, and welcome an opportunity to reschedule meetings as appropriate.
