Important Information

The 2019 Air Tattoo will revert back to the 2017 format following our successful RAF100 event. 


Admission tickets sent by email. Please bring this e-ticket (printed or on screen) to the entry gate. If you order an enclosure your passes will be posted prior to the event, from mid-May 2019. 


Super Earlybird (£47) and Earlybird (£52) discounts change after a set number of tickets are sold. This means that we will, during the year, be selling tickets in different price bands at the same time which we believe offers a better choice of discounted tickets. The discount is already applied and shown in the price below.


Please be aware that the Air Tattoo showground covers a large area and is approx. 2 miles in length. All disabled facilities at the Air Tattoo must be booked in advance. These cannot be booked online; find out more HERE.


By selecting this subsidised ticket option you are not entitled to bring your car to the Air Tattoo. The Shuttle Bus from Swindon Bus Station is only £4 return per day for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, or from Cheltenham Racecourse Park & Ride it is only £5 return per day in addition to the cost of your Air Tattoo admission ticket. Find out more HERE before booking.


As a ticket holder you do not need a permit to park at the Air Tattoo.  Parking can be on either grass or concrete.
