Air Tattoo 'Tickets Only' Warning

Published: 14 Jul 2015

We would like to warn those people without tickets to this weekend's Air Tattoo to avoid the area as the event is sold out on Saturday and Sunday and the surrounding roads will be extremely busy.

There will be no tickets available at the gates and Air Tattoo stewards and security staff have been instructed to turn away anyone that has entered the car parks without a ticket.

Unprecedented ticket demand plus an extended Friday opening time look set to make this one of the most popular Air Tattoo's in recent memory. A few Friday tickets are still available and must be purchased in advance HERE.

We work very closely with external agencies such as the police and Highways Authority throughout the year to ensure we have a robust traffic plan in place to handle the number of people we are expecting. Anyone thinking of travelling to Fairford on Saturday and Sunday without a ticket will simply risk inconveniencing people who are trying to get in.

If you purchased a Combined Admission and Swindon Shuttle Bus ticket please do not try and bring your car to the Air Tattoo. The bus will drop visitors at the new Yellow Entry Point and will not be allowed access through any other entry point.  A valid Air Tattoo admission ticket must be shown prior to boarding the bus at Swindon Bus Station.   

People with tickets are reminded to bring them as they will be scanned to enable entry.
