Arrive by air FAQs

We have answered some of the most frequently asked question about flying in below.

Do I need to book online?

Reserving your landing slot in advance online is the only way to arrive by air. Current COVID-19 guidance means that landing slots are strictly limited so we are operating on a first-come-first-served basis and allowing pilots to reserve a slot online. Slot booking closes at 9am on 5 August.

What does it cost to arrive by air?

Reserving your arrival time online is free and by flying in to the event you get free show access for you and your passengers. The airport’s usual landing fees still apply (view the details) and these will be payable direct to the airport. Save time on the day by paying your landing fee in advance. You can do this direct to Leeds East Airport by calling: 01937 534197

My ideal landing time has already been reserved, will more slots become available?

Landing slots are available at 5 minute intervals from 8:30 until 15:00 on August 6th. Although COVID-19 guidance means that slots are more limited then normal, any cancelled slots will be returned to the available pool, so it is worth checking back in the days leading up to the show if you don’t see a time that suits you.

Where can I find technical information about landing at Leeds East?

Detailed airport information, including runway maps and approach routes can be found on the Leeds East Airport website. You can download the event-specific Approach & Departure Procedures here and contact the airport directly with any technical queries.

How do I cancel a booking?

You can cancel an existing booking at any time by completing our booking cancellation form. We aim to process all cancellations within 5 days, at which point the time slot will be released back to the pool and can be booked again.

What happens to the information I share when booking?

We respect your right to privacy online and understand that you want to keep control of your personal information. That’s why we are committed to protecting any information you share with us. We collect only the information needed to process your booking and it will only be used by us or the team at Leeds East Airport for supporting your arrival by air and communicating important information about your reservation. You can learn more in our Privacy Policy.

What if the event is cancelled due to Covid-19?

If the show is cancelled or postponed due to Covid-19 or a lockdown imposed by Government or the local council we will aim to inform you as soon as possible. Any pilot with an existing landing reservation will be given priority access to book a replacement slot on the new show date.
