UPDATED INFORMATION REGARDING LOCAL TRAVEL DURING THE FARNBOROUGH INTERNATIONAL AIRSHOW

Share This Press Release:

16 May 2016

We understand that information released during our media day has raised questions from both our neighbours and those travelling to Farnborough during the Airshow period. As previously stated, in compliance with the new regulations brought into place following the CAA final report from their Civil Air Display Review, there will be more restrictions for entering areas surrounding TAG Farnborough Airport during flying display times.

These restrictions are expected to be in place between, 12.00 and 16.30 during the week prior to the Airshow, for validation flights, and during the Airshow itself between 12.30 and 17.30.

We have requested that Hampshire County Council close selected roads to all vehicles and pedestrians whilst aerobatic displays are taking place within the dedicated aerobatic flying area. We have also requested the following to be closed with diversions to put in place:

  • A section of the A323 Fleet road from its junction with Norris Hill Road and its junction Laffans Road.
  • A section of Aldershot Road from its junctions with the A323 Fleet Road and eastern boundary of The Forester public house.

We have also requested that Hampshire County Council close a small section of the Basingstoke Canal between Eelmoor and Norris Bridges and are working with the Council’s cooperation on this matter.

We recognise these restrictions and closures may be an inconvenience, but they are in place to ensure the safety of all. We hope that by publishing these details now it will enable people to plan travel between 4th and 17th July well in advance.

Farnborough International CEO, Shaun Ormrod, said “We are extremely grateful for all the support and advice we receive from both Hampshire County Council and Rushmoor Borough Council in ensuring areas around TAG Farnborough Airport are safe and people are able to continue to go about their business during our show with as little disruption as possible.“

All visitors to this year’s Farnborough International Airshow will see an outstanding flying display. Acts have been specifically chosen who can display within the new regulations without reducing the quality of impact of their performance.
