I am trying to get some days off so I can head over to the Farnborough air show. I have read how to get to the airport on different websites but I am wondering what would be the fastest way to get there from LGW?

Also is there any scheduled air service that flys directly to Farnborough or a nearby airport?

Heathrow is probably closer, just head strait down the M3?

Would you be renting car, probably the easiest way to get there?

It seems AA are joining up with the Farnborough organizers, they are the official airline of the airshow, maybe if you are flying in from the US you can get a deal?

Quite difficult to get there from LGW. LHR a much better bet with coaches and train services.

Not at all! Just get the train from Gatwick to North Camp, then get the shuttle bus to Farnborough,
It is the First Great Western link service to Reading, journey time to Farnborough is about 50 mins
