Farnborough Airshow

Friday 18 May 2018 by Jessica Mendoza

The Farnborough Airshow is back and bigger than ever (or so we’re told!) This year attendees will have the opportunity to experience over 150 aircrafts, 600 exhibitors and five hours of unforgettable flying from Monday 16th July to Sunday 22nd July.


A little bit of history…


Farnborough’s been part of aviation history since the very beginning and was home to the very first airfield in the UK, where the first powered flight took place in 1908. Quite a claim to fame! Farnborough has stayed true to its heritage, and even to this day is place well-known for coming up with new advances in the science of flying.


Jam-packed fun guaranteed…


The Farnborough Airshow will be packed with exciting new features to keep you and your family entertained all day. Static and flying displays, aerospace exhibitors, FAST Museum, futures and innovation zone, and many more activities that are just perfect for anyone who loves aerospace.


Transport (they unfortunately can’t accommodate parking your plane)…


Farnborough International Airshow is within easy reach of four stations – Farnborough Main, Farnborough North, North Camp and Aldershot. But if you’re driving down, the Farnborough Airshow is located on the A325, accessible from the M3 and A31. Parking is free but does get extremely busy so please be prepared for queues.


Free accessible shuttle buses run to and from the Airshow from all offsite car parks as well as Farnborough Main, North Camp and Aldershot stations. Shuttle buses to and from the stations and car parks run from 07:00hrs to 19:00hrs.




We highly recommend that you book your accommodation early to make sure you’re got a comfortable place to relax and unwind after all the excitement. Lucky for you, SACO Aparthotel Farnborough and SACO Farnborough - Reading Road are both only a 15 minute walk away from Farnborough Airshow, Ideal!
