SINGAPORE -- Mitsubishi Aircraft is exhibiting its SpaceJet passenger plane in an expanded booth at the Singapore Airshow, after fears of coronavirus contagion led to cancellations.

More than 70 companies, including Lockheed Martin, withdrew from the biennial show that was supposed to showcase 930 companies. This has given the Nagoya-based aircraft maker, an upstart in an industry dominated by global multinationals such as Boeing and Airbus, the opportunity to show its commitment to the region.
