First Class Lounge

The exclusive First Class Lounge is the perfect option for individuals, couples and family groups, looking for an unbeatable view of the flying display in a relaxed yet sophisticated environment with delicious all-day contemporary catering and an inclusive bar.

Located next to the VIP Chalets, and with access to our VIP traffic route (one-way system not in operation on Friday) and car park, your day in the First Class Lounge will be stress-free, leaving the adrenalin fuelled action to the pilots in the skies over RAF Fairford.

Due to the relaxed nature of the First Class Lounge there is no dress code, please feel free to dress up or dress down!

The First Class Lounge includes:
  • Access to fast track VIP traffic route (one-way system not in operation on Friday)
  • On-airfield VIP car parking
  • Crowdline location
  • Private marquee adjacent to the VIP Hospitality complex
  • Relaxed, all-day catering
  • Private garden* with outdoor lounge furniture
  • Private, luxury toilets

Children aged 5 and over require a ticket for the First Class Lounge. Under 5's are welcome to bring their own picnic - we can provide a lunchbox at a small additional cost.

*Please be aware that the grass length in the enclosure may be longer than experienced in previous years (at least 7 inches). The reasoning behind this is due to the need to improve the effectiveness of our bird deterrence and in-turn reduce the chances of bird-strikes. Short grass is attractive to birds so the adoption of a long-grass regime is a very effective airfield bird deterrent. It spoils their habitat by restricting their vision at ground level, thus reducing their security, and also by considerably restricting their access to food sources in the soil.
