Organizers of the sixth annual Cannes Airshow, to be held from June 7 to 9, expect to welcome more than 20,000 visitors at its Cannes-Mandelieu International Airport venue in the heart of the French Riviera. “There is nearly a 15-percent increase in participation this year compared with the 2011 show,” said event director Didier Mary. While billed as a general aviation event, the Cannes Airshow typically draws numerous business aviation exhibitors and aircraft. Past exhibitors have included Cessna, Dassault, Embraer and Hawker Beechcraft. Cannes-Mandelieu International is a popular alternative among business and private aviation operators to the more congested Nice Cote d’Azur Airport, a 45-minute drive away.
