Paris Air Show

Tue Nov 28, 2000 2:12 pm

Can someone please furnish some info about the Paris Air Show?

When is it held and for how long. Is it held every year?
Where in Paris is it held? At some airport I'm sure.
Is it open to the public? If so how does one get admitted? Admission fees?
Any other info you can share.

Thanks!

The Air Show in Paris is every 2 years. The last one was at '99 at Le Bourget (the airport).
Not every day is the salon open to public. Last time the first day and last 2 days (all weekend days) were open to public the other days only business people could visit this show. It is held in the end of june. I don't know what a ticket costs but food and drinks on the airport are very expensive (21 Francs for a Coca Cola).
It is also very very very very busy on these public days so be there on time otherwise you have to wait for a couple of hours to get in.

21 F for a Coke? It's not that bad at a little under US$3.00....I'd rather buy coke vs. gasoline in Paris.
