SINGAPORE -- Asia's biggest aviation industry event, the biennial Singapore Airshow, kicked off on Tuesday, providing a platform for aerospace companies to meet and discuss ways to navigate out of the COVID-19 crisis.

Prolonged travel restrictions -- particularly in Asia -- mean the airshow will draw significantly fewer attendees than previous gatherings. But the organizer says face-to-face meetings by top executives are key and that it hopes the four-day event will give momentum to the industry's post-pandemic recovery.
