The Bournemouth Air Festival is the UK's biggest, best and FREE aviation festival. This year it is back for the 10th edition! 

As the only summer destination for the UK’s best aviation entertainment Bournemouth will again be hosting incredible air displays, on the ground action and evening entertainment at the 10th Bournemouth Air Festival!

Since 2008 the Air Festival has welcomed more than 7 million people to the UK’s leading resort.  The Patrons scheme was launched in 2010 and has raised in excess of £80,000 for Air Festival charities, nominated by the Armed Forces. In 2015 Air Festival organisers were awarded gold as Visit England’s Tourism Event of the Year.

Award-winning and internationally renowned we have welcomed incredible jets and display teams, had year-on-year increased assets from the RAF and RN (who regard the festival as a key event in their calendar), won the Green Apple environmental award in 2011 and been recognised for Marketing and PR by the European Airshow Council (2010, 2012 and 2014).

The famous amphibious Royal Navy and Royal Marine beach assault demonstrations, with beachfront Royal Navy Village, and interactive RAF Village area, at Pier Approach, will both be returning.

Setting Bournemouth aside from other air shows, when the sun goes down, Night Air entertainment will light up the skies of the UK’s leading coastal resort with pyrotechnic night flying, street entertainment, awesome live music and military performances.

A free to attend event, the Bournemouth Air Festival is so much more than an air show!
