The team of Volunteers that organise the Scottish International Airshow were just days away from announcing that the 2021 show was to be held at Stranraer in Dumfries and Galloway during the Stranraer Oyster Festival, but due to the 2021 Oyster Festival is now being cancelled because of the Covid Pandemic, the Air Show that was planing on bringing displays from the Red Arrows, Typhoon and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight has now been postponed until 2022.

A Spokesperson for SIA said “Our small and dedicated team have been incredibly hard hit by the Covid pandemic and reduced to a very small core. Even with that major handicap we had managed to arrange a new Airshow for 2021.

The show was to be combined with a major family ground event and be ticketed so we would have control of the number of attendees

We were only days away from announcing that we were bringing the amazing Red Arrows, Typhoon and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight to a completely new and exciting Airshow venue at Stranraer.

Sadly our partners in organising the new show have had to put everything on hold for 2021 and we now cannot go ahead.

We will now look at organising an Airshow for Stranraer in late May or early June in 2022 and expect to make an announcement in the autumn. A strictly limited number of tickets will go on sale shortly afterwards

Let’s all hope 2022 is going to be the renaissance of events. You can be sure that our dedicated team will be working hard and planning to be there when Airshows take to the skies again”
