Le Bourget : Question

Fri Apr 29, 2005 8:09 pm

I just checked the official site for Le Bourget airshow wich I'm planning to visit this year.
The business days are from 13 to 16 june and 17,18 and 19 are public days.
I was wondering who is eligible to visit during the business days.
I'd imagine it's much less crowded during those days.
I'm planning to go with 3friends of mine and all of us are airline employees.
I myself am a KLM F/A, two other friends are F/O at SN and the last one is a
F-16 pilot for the belgian airforce.
Is there any chance we could get in during the business days???
I tried to find this information on the site but I didn't find it.

You need to be an exhibitor or you must hold a press pass issued in advance by the administration of the Paris Air Show.

Too bad that I didn't know a few weeks earlier that I get a press pass, then I had booked my flight for another day than Saturday because it will be less crowded within the week than on the weekend, now I can't change the dates because I booked the cheapest non-flexible Eco fare. Anyway, I am just glad that I get the pass.

Hi ! Guys

Don't know which official site you refer to but the following will give you a link to a -paying- access professional ticket .


1/-Choose your language by clicking on the flags on top left corner
2/-At the bottom right corner,click on "trade visitors entry pass"
3/-which will bring you to "on line ticket order"

I've done this for many years and it's really worth it as the "salon" is quite confortable without the crowds and the fries-and-sausages vendors.One could then stroll and discuss with the exhibitors...The best way to enjoy Le Bourget short of an invite from EADS !!!

Could even make it an A-net meet for a nice meal!
