Take Care When Buying Tickets Advise Airshow Organisers

Organisers of this July’s Farnborough International Airshow are warning customers of the risks associated with buying tickets through ticket selling platforms or auction websites.

The move follows serious concerns that tickets and associated costs mean customers buying elsewhere are paying far more than if they buy directly through Farnborough International’s website. In one incident, a site charged £186 for two tickets; the actual total cost should have been £85.50.

Gareth Rogers, CEO of Farnborough International says: “Families booking to visit this July’s airshow should expect a fantastic experience but it’s important they get value for money.

“We believe the price we sell tickets at is fair, especially as children are admitted free; however I am concerned that ticket-selling platforms are vastly inflating prices.”

Limiting the sale of tickets through ticket selling platforms or auction websites is a major challenge. To guarantee the right price and the best value, customers are being advised to only buy through www.farnboroughairshow.com, or if buying elsewhere, to check that the price and all associated costs are fair. 

This year’s Airshow looks set to be the most varied and exciting yet. As well as the legendary flying display, there’s an opportunity to get up close to aircraft on the ground with static displays from across the ages.

Winchester Science Centre is bringing a range of interactive exhibits, live shows and their mobile planetarium for a trip across the galaxy. And there’s a dedicated Space Zone revealing even more about the solar system. 

Fly back to the past and view the selection of vintage aircraft being showcased by Brooklands Museum. Or, head to the Futures and Innovation Zone, and discover the very latest innovation and technology.
