The Farnborough Airshow is ending its public weekend air show days.

Under the new format, the next event, set for July 20-24, 2020, will be held over five days instead of seven. The public will be allowed access on July 24.

Airshow CEO Gareth Rogers said the move will allow visitors “to see more of the people, products and processes that underpin the global aerospace, defense and space industries.”

The public element of the show has struggled in recent years to live up to expectations. This is partly due to restrictions on flight performances following the fatal crash at the Shoreham Airshow in 2015 in which 11 people died.

“Removing the public weekend will disappoint some, but for our exhibitors and trade visitors the focus is on business and accessing the talent they need to sustain global competitiveness,” Rogers said.
