From the heart of Bavaria to Paris

This event offered journalists and industry partners a chance to network with the Deutsche Aircraft team to learn more about the D328eco product and take an exclusive tour of the cabin and cockpit mock-up which highlighted the aircraft’s latest technologies.
Anastasija Visnakova, Vice President Sales & Marketing at Deutsche Aircraft, was delighted about the outcome of the Paris Air Show and the connections made at this year’s event. “After Covid-19, it is fantastic to be back in Paris to catch up with the developments in the industry. We are here to build solid relations with industry partners and we did so successfully throughout this week with our announcements about major collaborations. We also kept the industry updated with our progress on our D328eco programme.”
Paul Wawruszczak, Head of Marketing at Deutsche Aircraft, expressed gratitude to his team who made the show possible. “The Paris Air Show is one of the most prestigious aviation events where we pulled out all the stops and leave our mark as a brand and we are extremely satisfied with the outcome as we had a huge interest to our chalet and the D328eco cabin and cockpit mock ups. It is always an honour to be part of this event where you have the opportunity to join the wider aviation family and find out about current trends in the industry. This year, we also presented a cabin mock-up of our D328eco, where visitors could get to know more about the on-board experience.”
