Admission with Shuttle Bus or Park & Ride

To enable easy access to the event we offer a subsided combined admission ticket with dedicated Shuttle Bus from Swindon Bus Station or Park & Ride from Cheltenham Racecourse. These come via a fast track route (not Friday) straight into the show to the Yellow Customer Entry Point at the eastern end of the showground which is for visitors that travel to the event by  Bus, Coach, by bike or on foot.

You are not entitled to bring your car to the Air Tattoo if you select the subsidised admission with Shuttle Bus or Park & Ride as your ticket is only valid for the Yellow Customer Entry Point.  All buses will also depart from here (Yellow).

Travel on the bus is subject to the production of a valid Admission Ticket. This e-ticket is also your bus ticket and must be shown to board the Bus. 

Swindon Shuttle Bus - Only £3 Return with an Admission Ticket

Bus tickets can also be purchased on the day at Swindon Bus Station on production of a valid Air Tattoo Admission Ticket. Parking is not provided and car parks can found HERE. Please be aware the fast-track route is not in operation on Friday.
