Location: MH 59. Szentgyorgyi Dezso Air Base (Kecskemet, Air Base)
  • Gates open: 0730
  • Closing time: 1800
Tickets:

Ticket prices as in 2005 and 2007. If purchased in advance sale, i.e. before the 15th August 0:00, they cost:
  • 3500 HUF (adults)
  • 1500 HUF for children under 14.
The ticket contains the price of the parking ticket, the fare by bus from and to the parking lots and the insurance. (There is no age limit, since only those are entitled to life and casualty insurance who do have a valid ticket (or invitation). For their own and their children’s safety, the organizers expect everybody to buy a ticket.)

Pre-purchased tickets may been obtained at:
  • post offices and everywhere, where lottery tickets are sold.
  • every Ticketpro office.

Just as last year, the tickets’ material and form is identical to the form and material of lottery tickets, since the terminal normally printing the lottery ticket is also used to print the air show tickets. The salesperson will place your ticket in a small bag, with a brochure containing useful information.

Tickets purchased in advance in any Ticketpro Kft. ticket office are printed according to the office’s printing procedure and delivered in the same manner as above.

On both days of the airshow, tickets may be purchased at the entrance and also everywhere, where lottery tickets are sold. However, the admission fee increases to 4000 HUF and 2000 HUF respectively.

Tickets purchased at the entrance and everywhere else are identical with those sold in advance. The only difference is the price printed on them. These tickets are also put in a small bag together with the brochure.
