TICKETS for this year's Royal International Air Tattoo are selling fast - and the Friday event has now filled up.

General admission tickets for Sunday, July 21, are the only standard tickets remaining, though enclosures are still available for both Friday and Sunday.

A surge in popularity has seen an unprecedented level of demand for the military aircraft spectacular, with Friday and Saturday selling at a record pace.

Featuring an extensive flying display, starring the Red Arrows, Canadian Hornet, Spanish Harrier and a variety of other aircraft, Sunday is bustling with activity both in the air and on the ground.

Sunday’s flying programme is identical to Saturday’s and also features its own unique special flypast which will mark the 60th Anniversary of the RAF Red Arrows.

Last week, a selection of the aircraft from the United States Air Force were revealed, including the huge C-17 Globemaster transport aircraft and a trio of aerial tankers, with a further update coming soon as organisers put the finishing touches on this year’s aircraft line-up.

Chief Executive Officer at Royal Air Force Charitable Trust Enterprises, Paul Atherton, said: “We’ve been astounded by the level of interest we’ve seen in our event again this year.

“Every year we aim to host a spectacular event at RAF Fairford and in recent years we have gained some real momentum, last year we secured our first back-to-back sell-out so we are going from strength to strength.

“RIAT24 will be no different, we’ve got an incredible array of aircraft and we are looking forward to the show.”

This month’s show theme is ‘Pushing the Boundaries in Air and Space’ with 50-years of the F-16 Fighting Falcon, 75-years of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the Royal Canadian Air Force’s centenary also being recognised.

In addition, 2024 is a milestone year for the Red Arrows, as they celebrate their Diamond season with a new routine.

“This year we have got some fantastic themes that show the full breadth of what aviation contributes across the world in which we live,” added Paul “From aircraft that collect scientific data, sustainable electric aviation and international display teams, we have something for everyone.

“If you are thinking about joining us at this year’s show, I’d encourage you to act fast to avoid missing out.”
