Aero Show 2017, Bangalore – Dates, Registration, Ticket Cost, Timing and Rules

Aero Show is back for another spectacular event in Bangalore. Aero Show in Bangalore is a bi-annual affair which is quite a big event and has a lot of fan fare. Who wouldn’t like to experience the latest Fire Power and Aircraft that Indian Defense possesses! Above all its a bonus that you can see them in action performing hair-raising stunts for the crowd. The tickets get sold out pretty fast for this event. So if you have not registered yet, here is how you can register.

During the last Aero show in 2015, the ticket purchasing process was quite complex and unclear. However, things have improved this year for good. The team has finally embraced online payments adding another feather to the Digital India movement and now you can register and buy tickets online. I have listed the steps of the same below.

    Hi,
    What are the time slots of actual air show? I mean when jets are going to perform in the air?
    They have mentioned that after buying ticket, we can go on any day after 14th till 18th. Do they perform everyday? If yes in what time slots?
    Thanks

      Air show timings usually 10-12 and 3-5. Timings same for all days from 15-18. On 14 due to VIP visit the morning show is reserved and general public is not allowed.
      The show on all days will be the same for both time slots. People can watch both shows on any day they enter

  5. Gruham says:

    Did anyone know the list of aircrafts that will participate in the flying display this year?

  6. Girish g says:

  10. Vinod Ladwa says:

    Hi.. I have couple of questions:
    1) As a general public, is there any dress code?/ Is there any dress code for general public.?

    2) I have already booked tickets for 2, i have kid who is 4 yrs old. can i take him too in the given days i.e 15/02/2017 to 18/02/2017. Which day would be better to watch to see the plane closely. ?

    Please reply…

  11. Sitanshu Sekhar Das says:

    Dear Piyush, I want to see both the aero show and the exhibition. should I take both the tickets?

  12. Shiv says:

    Hi Piyush,

    Is there any specific difference between air display viewing area(ADVA) and exhibition area except for the ticket price and timings?? Is it about access to some particular shows?

    • Exhibition area does not provide access to shows. I believe they have the latest fire power on display in the exhibition area. For viewing the show, ADVA is good enough.

      • Shivasharana Inginshetty says:

        Thanks for the reply Piyush.

        I had another query. I have registered and booked 2 tickets under a single registration ID. Will there be any problem during the collection badges/tickets. During the registration I have booked tickets for 2 persons, so I should be issues 2 tickets right?

  13. Shreyas says:

    can General Public buy the Business Visitor ticket?

  14. S K Singh says:

    What is Business Visitor Exhibition Area?

    Does every has to watch the show from ADVA or are there any other special seats also

    • ADVA is the common area for the general public. Not aware of any special seats.
      Business Visitor pass gives you access to all areas excluding the Chalets. I am assuming there may be some special sections dedicated for business visitors.

  15. mahima singh says:

    Hi,

    I wanted to book business visitor tickets worth 2500/-. Can anybody help withthe benefits of this ticket. Are these premium seats. As written, only open on 18th for general public.

  16. Preeti says:

    I have couple of questions;
    1. On Business days general public not allowed for entry i.e. b/w 14-17 Feb?
    2. I am having son below 5 years can I carry meal/food item and water for him along with me as it is mentioned food items not allowed so how we will manage in the show from 09 to 05 PM. Will there be food & water stalls arrangement.
    3. I heard that there will be no seating arrangements and you have to watch the whole show standing at the area, is this true?

    • 1. Yes allowed to the ADVA.
      2. Children below 16 years will not be permitted on business days ( 14 -17 February 2017)
      3. Not sure.

      • Krishna says:

        Hi Piyush
        Nowhere in the official site says childers below 16 are not permitted 14-17 Feb ?

      • Pranav Desai says:

        Hello
        1.General public except children below 18 years will be allowed in static display chalets using business visitors tickets And no one can see air show from chalets.
        2. Sitting arrangements are very less in Aero Show Area. So those who can’t stand for long hours need to take care.
        3. All people need to carry valid government issued photo id proofs.
        4. In business class you may get chance to see one or two latest fighter jet aircrafts. Not confirm that it will be allowed for visitors to see the cockpit too.

    • Rahul says:

      Plenty of food and water arrangements will be there. Show has to be watched standing. No seating arrangements

  42. Dr, Prashanth.T says:

    I am really happy that Aero-India 2017 has become fully digital. As they will have acess to complete information of vistors who are genuine. Anti-Socials & Anti-Nationals must be filtered from these International events. Also online Payment has really helped me this time as Last time I had to struggle to go & buy tickets as a doctor with out any helping hand I had hellish time on earth with hellish vehicular traffic in 2015.
    Hope this time Every thing will go very smoothly for the Air Display team first & foremost, then with the Organizers & Lastly the Visitors. I was saddened by Mishap of our Helicopter team with Women Pilots also.Wish & pray evrything goes Smoothly & to the Perfection which we have seen with Indian Airforce at Jalahalli, Bengaluru.

    1.On the registration form there is no date available when I can go and watch the show, it means i can do register and go whenever I am free between 14th afternoon to 18th ? or after registration they will give me the date ?

  47. Santhosh says:

  48. Zacharias says:

  49. Chandrashekhar says:

    Is it mandatory to register online to get the business visitors pass or can we get the tickets at the venue paying money at the venue just like in 2015.
    Regards
    Chandrashekhar

  50. kislay says:

    Question is very basic one, I have booked Exhibition ticket of 1500 Rs. Does it allow airshow viewing also or just exhibition?

  51. Jagdish Kumar says:

    Is it mandatory that the person who had registered can only go to the event, if the person is not coming, I can take other person.
    Should I need to carry photocopy of the registered ID to avail the tickets at the venue. And I can go to Aero show on any of the days 14-18th.

    • That’s difficult to say as this is the first for online registration. Since there is an involvement of defense, they may stick to actual registerations. Best way to find will be via someone who goes over the next 2days.

  52. Anirudh says:

    Is there a a program schedule? I want to know on what dates and times will the air show (like of Surya Kiran) will take place. Would be glad to have those details.

  53. Akash Verma says:

    If I take the passes for “Exhibition only area” for 18th Feb. Can i also access ADVA area or do i have to take separate passes worth Rs.600 for accessing that area?

    • Sijo says:

      No need to take ADVA. Exhitbition area is much closer to the air display than ADVA. And you can see the exhinition too. ADVA is far off and it is better to stay at home.

  54. Lilly says:

    How much is cost for 1 person..

  55. Prajwal krishna says:

  56. Prajwal krishna says:

    Sir plz help me my transaction was successful according to bank web page bt it was not successful according to aeroindia ! N i didn’t get the id number also will it come later or shud i complain about that!

  57. Sriram says:

    Hi,
    I see the Rs.600 ticket is for the Air Display Viewing Area, which is for viewing the aero show, the Rs.1500 ticket seems to be for the Visitors Exhibition Area. Can someone tell me, if this would include the viewing of the Aero show (ADVA), or is it just the Exhibition Center?

    • As per the information available the 1500 ticket will not give access to ADVA but some folks have mentioned that you can see the aero show from the exhibition area as well.

      • Sijo says:

        No need to take ADVA. Exhitbition area is much closer to the air display than ADVA. And you can see the exhinition too. ADVA is far off and it is better to stay at home.

  58. Romy says:

    My son is 3 years old can I get my son for the show

  59. Anand says:

    Hi Piyush, Or anyone who have an answer to my question,
    Would like to understand what is the difference between the Rs600 and the Rs.1500 tickets (apart from the later being on Weekend).
    2.With the Rs600 ticket, are the exhibits seen from a closest distance ?
    3.Im also taking my daughter who is 3 yrs old.Are there any arrangements for basic facilities like water,light snack etc at the venue?
    4. Considering the weekend crowd, how much time would you suggest to reach in advance at the main gate, to be in time for the show (preferably Morn as the crowd may be low)

    • Darshan CY says:

      Hi Anand,

      600 rs Ticket is for just seeing the aircraft flying , 1500 is for viewing the exhibition area and static aircraft display.Both have different entry gates. Yes they will have stalls for food and water so do not worry about that.

    • Sijo says:

      No need to take ADVA. Exhitbition area is much closer to the air display than ADVA. And you can see the exhinition too. ADVA is far off and it is better to stay at home than ADVA. Go for 1500 ticket.

    1. Is Food available at venue for ADVA visitors, as on website it is written that food is not allowed.

    2. Is parking facility is available for ADVA Visitors. If yes, what are the charges.

    3. what are the show timings.

    4. What time we need to report there. as show time is given 09:00 to 17:00 hrs.

    Please advise.

    • 1. Someone confirmed just chips and cola is available. They may be restricting food to avoid litter and birds.

      2. Yes. Not sure of charges.

      3. I believe there are 2 – 10am and 2pm.

      4. See 3

  75. Chaitra says:

    I have a registered through online in Aero India website and got unique Id no generted. Only Id no with original proof is enough or I have to collect tickets in some CCD and go. Please let me know.

  76. Ansar K A says:

    Do I need to take ticket for my 5 and half year old son?

    Is parking available?

  77. Bhasker Raj says:

    I purchased ticket on line and received SMS with Unique Registration ID and payment made on line with debit card.
    Did not receive barcode.
    I took a print of the SMS with the Unique Registration ID.
    Was able to get the pass at the counter in Gate 1.
    However, would like to comment on the way the show is conducted.
    There is no counter to help visitors get the informatipn.
    Only the security personnels in every nook and corner.
    Found it very difficult to manage to see the show.
    The business class of people receive special attention.
    Two telephone numbers were provided for the public, tried contacting
    but no one answering the phones.
    Will be writing to Director aeroshow about these problems.
    No food available in the show. Only soft drinks and chips.

  78. N Lokesh says:

  90. praveena says:

    Hi Piyush,

    added a child whoz less than 5 yr old in the ticket .How to get refund?
    or Can i bring one adult to compensate that ticket cost?

  91. Mehul says:

    Hello, they cancelled the show on Feb 14. I could not use tickets and I can not go any other day. Have they created a process to ask for refund, as they have cancelled the show on Feb 14. I saw atleast 200 people asking for refund on venue on that day. Pathetic management.

  92. Neep says:

    The payment gateway isn’t working today.
    Not able to get the tickets.
    Anyone else also facing this problem ?

  93. Mohunn says:

    Today at Whitefield CCD… no ticket issuer is available. Why? What is the alternative now? Which other location should we run to?

  94. Mohunn says:

    We are 4 members. Suppose I just pay for the entry tickets online, and take the printouts. Will they be considered VALID with ID proof ? Will we be allowed through the entry gate?

  95. Hanumantha Rao says:

    Can any one share experience using their exhibition entrance ticket .. will we be allowed to see the airbirds close? to see the airshow, should we go to ADVA only? if so, are we allowed?

  96. Biswajit says:

    If I register online and pay, Do I still need to go to CCD to collect the ticket or its enough to go the aero show directly with the Unique ID?

  97. Nanjappa says:

    Piyush Job JOb , Nice info. Hope you are settled so soon in life,so social service so soon.

  98. Rukhsana says:

  99. Srihari says:

    Hi

    I’ve booked 3 tickets online as General Visitor for ADVA (3 x Rs.600)

    Aero India website says, we can visit any one day and we can collect the pass at the venue itself by producing Reg. ID and Photo Identity Proof

    But its sad that NOWHERE in the entire website it gives the timings of actual aerobatics air show by planes & helicopters ( I mean, start time and duration of air shows where planes will make actual flying and acrobatics)

    Iam planning to visit Aero India on Saturday, 18th Feb. Could you please help by sharing the actual start time and approx. duration of air show

    Thanks
    Srihari

  100. Newton raj says:

    HI Piyush,

    I have booked for Visitors Exhibition Area ticket. Should i need to book seperate ticket for ADVA also.. Or can i use exhibition ticket to see the Airshow. Please help

  101. Ravi Singhal says:

    Can you please help me out with these two questions:

    1) Can one buy the tickets at the venue? and if yes which gate number one should go?
    2) Are there different tickets for foreigners?

  102. Azad Khan says:

    HiPiyush, just wanted to check if cameras are allowed?? Any idea?

  103. Azad Khan says:

    Can we reach there by car? How are the parking arrangements?

  104. R says:

    Ok. I’ve been going to the airshow for 10 years now. It is jaw-dropping amazing. Don’t miss it.

    Some pointers:

    1) Which ticket to take? There are two areas.

    a)) Exhibition area. Here you can see the airshow AND also the exhibition. The exhibition when I used to go was not worth it and only of interest if you’re interested in military components. One or two aircrafts parked and cordoned off (like in cubbon park) and mostly industrial aircraft components etc displayed – the audience is business/military buyers not general public. This area is extremely crowded and I remember no place to even stand while watching the air show.

    b) ADVA is the area from where we can see just the airshow. It is adjacent to exhibition and separated by a fence. I prefer this area because it has wide open space and less crowd. Very relaxed. The runway is equally close so the airshow will be the same. (though from exhibition area the aircrafts will be PARKED closer if it matters to you)

    2) Show times:

    There is a morning show. 9 to 12 or something like that. And a repeat of the exact show in the afternoon

    3) When to go:

    Target to be there by 7:30am if you don’t want to risk missing a minute. Expect heavy traffic so keep an hour buffer. When you reach, there could be long lines to exchange your printout for a pass (need original ID they say). If you arrive early no problem..you can stroll around.

    4) What to bring

    – Expect heat: Make sure you bring hats, broad-brims being better. Get sunglasses if you’re averse to glare. Get large umbrellas if you can. Water you can buy…i’m not sure if allowed in.
    – Expect dust: Imagine some 3 lakh people walking on dirt grounds. There is dust in the air.
    – Expect no chairs: Get something to spread on the ground and sit. We take camp chairs and large umbrellas and a sleeping bag to spread on the ground. It becomes a nice picnic area. If nothing take something to spread on the ground. You don’t want to be standing all day craning your necks. The ground is all dust though you may not have a choice if you don’t bring anything.
    – Expect places to buy food: There were a lot of stalls – from pizzas to snacks to proper indian fare. A little set back from the viewing area. No place to sit and eat. Buy and eat there standing or walk out back to see the show.
    – Expect some form of restrooms. Don’t expect toilet tissues. Bring them.
    – Binoculars are useful. So are SLR cameras. Phones are fine otherwise. Bring a powerbank if you want.

    4) What to expect in the show
    – Fighter jets: Gripen, Sukhoi, F-16, Rafale, Tejas. Maybe more. They are just STUNNING! The speeds. The roars. The power. The maneuvers and barrel rolls and dives and strikes are indescribable. This is of the see-it-to-believe-it variety.

    – Aerobatic teams: (a) Suryakiran team from IAF, this time in a 6-aircraft formation. They are usually crowd favorites (b) A Brit team in 4 russian aircrafts. New this year. I saw them practicing – slightly unusual looking planes (c) A scandinavian team. They are really cool with wingwalkers! – girls coming out of the aircraft and standing outside as the aircrafts flyby. (d) Sarang – an IAF helicopter formation team with 4-copters. They do a lot of tricky things for helicopters…but well helicopters are not so nimble as the planes….and sometimes it reminds me of watching a group of hippos trying to dance just after you’ve watched nimble sealions and dolphins dazzle. 🙂

    – A few other aircrafts. Particularly cool is the American Hercules cargo plane. It is a massive giant…looks lumbering and clumsy…till you watch it take off!!! It takes off in what looks like within 20 feet. Will leave you surprised how on earth it left the ground.

    Enjoy!

  117. Hemal says:

    Just now booked the ticket online, it gave unique id on page and as sms also, now tomorrow i can show this and collect the ticket at the venue also, or i have to goto some CCD listed here?

  118. Ansar K A says:

    Just visited Aeroshow on thursday.
    No much traffic. If you are going by car, we will be entering the airbase from backside and Bangalore traffic police are thr all the way to help.
    Parking is inside airbase, so you can walk to venu within in 5 mnts.
    In ticket counter they are asking for mobile message, printouts are not accepted. Lot of volunteers in ticket counter and it wont take much time to get your tickets.

    Foods are not allowed inside, they will empty all foods before entering the venue. But there is a Big Food court inside the air base and you will get all type of food thr(from veg to non-veg to fast food) lot of juice and tender coconut counters are also thr. Food court is so huge that even if entire crowd comes to the place at once it can accommodate all of them. So no need to carry foods to the venue. they accept both cards and cash in almost all counters.

    Its well organized in all aspects

  131. Vinay says:

    Many thanks Piyush & all others for sharing the useful posts of 2015 & the current on-going 2017.
    My experience with the 1500/- TICKET
    GateNo.1 –you can get the entry if you have already(From CCD)taken your ACTUAL ENTRY CARD(which is a plastic card like our Debit/Credit Card)–this you can also get from Gate 5.(which is about 2km walk from the Gate No.1–you have to cross the other side of the highway),stand in a long Q (if planned better–one can park their car there and then stand in the Q),this Q is where they verify your ID Card(please ensure you carry it–they are very strict about it) & check you BARCODE print out or the SMS with the number before issuing you the ENTRY CARD.
    Also, i saw many BUYING the ticket LIVE there too(they have the card machine) by showing their ID proof.
    I saw FOREIGNERS too showing their passport & buying the ENTRY CARD.So it not ONLY WEBSITE bookings,but LIVE also possible.
    They arrange a small shuttle bus (they again match your ID card & ENTRY CARD before u board the bus)which drops you to a point from where you need to walk (about 1km)–the bus cuts through the Airforce people Quarters/Residential area & then you walk through a tunnel too (basically it just goes below the highway).
    Once you enter you have a one more check point (separate for ladies & gents),finally you arrive at the HUGE halls which is the EXHIBITION area.
    Beyond that is the ABSOLUTE pleasure to watch the AEROSHOW (10am & 2pm shows),thousands just stand(and sit on the floors/road) open to the sky/sun & watch the show (please don’t worry about ADVA 600/- vs EXHIBTION 1500/-)….Just buy the 1500/- it serves the purpose.
    Plenty of food & drinks counter.
    The MOVENPICK & JW MARRIOT Buffet(only,no AlaCarte) is 1350 per head.Please note–A2B(South Indian food-Thali),Burger Big,CCD,CocaCola are the other cheaper/reasonable options.
    Cleanly managed washrooms too.
    Good AERO centric merchandise & gifts one can buy.
    don’t bother about the dress code–T SHIRT/SHORTS/JEANS–all possible clothes allowed for today for sure.
    This might help for 2019(unless they change some process again !)–as by now its over for this year 🙂

  132. Nagesh says:

    On 18 th February 2017, we had been to Aero Show at ADVA.
    There was no seperate Q for Senior citizens to buy entry ticket.
    Entry ticket cost was Rs.600/- per head.No concession to Senior Citizens.
    No sitting arrangement.We saw some spectators have brought carpet, mat with them to sit on ground and view the show.

    The Aero Show authorities were not concerned about general Senior Citizens. Sitting arrangements were available to dignitaries.
