This summer will see the return of the Red Arrows on both days of Southport Air Show on Saturday 13th July 2024 and Sunday 14th July 2024 in what promises to be a weekend packed with excitement.

Other aircraft include the Typhoon, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the Tutor. 

While there will be lots to enjoy in the air, there’s a full programme of activities on the ground too. 

With flight simulators and static aircraft and military vehicles to explore, and so much more, it’s a fantastic family day out.

Southport Air Show 2024 will see several measures put into place to improve the experience for visitors this year. 

After some visitors last year raised concerns about issues such as lengthy queues and difficulty with car parking, Sefton Council’s Tourism team say they have “listened to feedback and taken action” in a number of areas. 

A new traffic management company has been brought in; an additional car park is being created for the event; there will be more staff manning the entrances; and flying times will be changed. 

A Visit Southport statement said: “Last year didn’t go to plan. We sincerely apologise for some of the problems that occurred during the 2023 Air Show. We acknowledge that there were some logistical issues that impacted the event. We understand the disappointment experienced by some attendees.

“We listened to your feedback and we have taken action. The logistics for Southport Air Show have been improved for this year, with changes to traffic management and entry into the event.

The changes for 2024 

“We are confident that the following changes will help this year’s event run more smoothly.”
