DUE to the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Abbotsford International Airshow Society announced on Monday that it has made the decision not to proceed with the 2020 Airshow. The event will be postponed for one year, returning in August 2021.
The primary goal of the Airshow Society every year is to produce an event that is safe for all spectators and participants. The decision to postpone the 2020 Airshow is necessary to support the health and safety of these individuals and our community as a whole.
“It had been our hope that by August, the spread of COVID-19 would be minimized and our event would be able to proceed,” said Jim Reith, President of the Abbotsford International Airshow Society. “We were hopeful that the Airshow could be something positive for the community to look forward to, but it has become clear that preventative health measures such as social distancing are going to continue to be necessary beyond our scheduled event dates.”
“We want to thank our sponsors, partners and patrons for their continued support during this unprecedented and difficult time. We know our fans will be disappointed, but we look forward to bringing Canada’s National Airshow back to the skies over Abbotsford in 2021.”
Current ticket holders will have their tickets honoured at the 2021 event or will be given the option of requesting a refund. Further information and instructions will be sent directly to ticket holders by email within the next few days.
