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 Aircrafts 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.
The tickets even today are unfortunately available through AXIS bank branches. There are rumors of tickets being available in some popular spots like Forum, MG Road, Garuda Mall, Phoenix MarketCity, etc but I cannot confirm the same. Based on the official communication from aeroindia I have listed the branch details of Axis Bank where you can buy the tickets.
Also listed down the guidelines and registration details.
