About RIAT

The Royal International Air Tattoo is more than just an airshow.

It is a three-day event that will overwhelm your senses. From the roar of jet engines ripping through the air to the cheer of the crowd line – it’s an experience like no other. Experience sights and sounds that will leave your heart racing and raise the hairs on the back of your neck as aircraft and nations descend on Fairford for a festival of flight.

And you can elevate that experience by doing it all from one of our unique hospitality areas.
