Sunderland Airshow 2019 26/07/2019 to 28/07/2019

How to get here

For most people, the safest and easiest way to get to #SunAirshow is by public transport.

Park and Ride

Park and Ride will operate from 3 different sites throughout the weekend. Use the postcodes provided to get you there, park up and get on a bus that drops you right at the event site.  The Take Off Enclosure is approximately a 2 minute walk from Park and Ride 1 and 2, and a 10 minute walk from Park and Ride 3.

The cost is £2.50 per person, return. Under 5s travel free. Card and contactless payments are taken on the buses. 

All the buses on the Airshow Park & Ride have space for 1 wheelchair or up to 2 pushchairs, but at busy times, customers may be asked to fold their pushchair or wait for the next bus.

We'll have staff at each Park & Ride site and at each bus stop at the Airshow to answer any questions.

When you arrive at the Airshow site, your Park & Ride bus will pick you up at the same stop for your return journey
