COVID-19 Airshow Update – Abbotsford International Airshow

Due to the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Abbotsford International Airshow Society has made the decision not to proceed with the 2020 Airshow. The event will be postponed for one year, returning in August 2021.

The
primary goal of the Airshow Society every year is to produce an event that is
safe for all spectators and participants. The decision to postpone the 2020
Airshow is necessary to support the health and safety of these individuals and our
community as a whole.

“It had
been our hope that by August, the spread of COVID-19 would be minimized and our
event would be able to proceed,” says Jim Reith, President of the Abbotsford
International Airshow Society. “We were hopeful that the Airshow could be
something positive for the community to look forward to, but it has become
clear that preventative health measures such as social distancing are going to
continue to be necessary beyond our scheduled event dates.”

“We want
to thank our sponsors, partners and patrons for their continued support during
this unprecedented and difficult time. We know our fans will be disappointed,
but we look forward to bringing Canada’s National Airshow back to the skies
over Abbotsford in 2021.”

Current ticket holders will have their tickets honoured at the 2021 event or will be given the option of requesting a refund. Further information and instructions will be sent directly to ticket holders by email.

We will also be updating our Frequent Asked Questions page with common questions.
