On arrival at the site

The Farnborough Airshow is a very popular event therefore please expect to queue to get into the show ground.  Having your tickets ready to be scanned and bags ready to be searched will all help speed the queue along. Print-at-home tickets will be accepted as paper or digital copies downloaded to a mobile device.

All bags will also be scanned by our security team.  If you’re bringing a picnic, please note that any sharp knives or other sharp cooking implements will be confiscated.

There are two main entrances to the site, Gate F and Gate B.  Please remember which entrance you arrived at, as this will make it much easier when leaving at the end of the day.

Pick up a show map and download our app to help familiarise yourself with the venue, the amenities and plan your day.

Remember that the exhibition halls are closed at the weekend with the exception of the Hall 1 and the Innovation Zone Hall 3. 

Please use one of our children’s wrist bands and place it on your child with your name and contact details. Wrist bands are available at the main entrances, information points or from the Farnborough Flyers.

With the exception of Guide Dogs or Assistance Dogs, no dogs or pets of any kind are permitted on the show site.

Check the weather forecast

Remember that we are an outdoor venue and a green field site so please check the weather and wear appropriate clothing and footwear.
