Air Show Stay Safe and Separate Initiatives


The New York International Air Show is implementing a series of “Stay safe and separate initiatives” to ensure the safety of guests and spectators at this year’s event. The following initiatives extend across the entire event site:

 

  • All spectator viewing will be reserved seating by group with large aisles between group sections and rows
  • Tickets must be purchased online or by phone, they will not be sold on-site at the event.
  • All tickets will include parking to reduce contact entering the airport.
  • Portable restrooms will be spaced out and frequently sanitized
  • Increased quantity of hand-washing and sanitizing stations
  • Wearing a mask is optional when you are seated watching the show separated from other spectators
  • Wearing a mask is required while transiting, getting food or using the restroom
  • Hand sanitizer and masks will be available for purchase at all event merchandise stands
  • This year’s show will be a cashless event site to reduce the need for contact at food, beverage and retail stands
  • Payments for food, beverage and merchandise will be by credit card or air show gift card only
  • Event site will be designed so guests can walk from parking to the entrance gates without having to ride a bus

A cash exchange booth will be set up to be able to purchase air show gift cards for issues like credit card declines or exhausted balances on pre-paid debit cards.  There will be a 10% convenience fee added to all cash gift card purchases.  Gift cards can be used like a credit card for food and beverage purchases anywhere inside the event site.
