Al Ain air show postponed again because of bad weather

The event was scheduled to start today but persisting sand storms push the start to Friday.

AL AIN // The Al Ain Air Show has been postponed yet again because of adverse weather conditions that continue to affect the UAE.

The Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority and the UAE Armed Forces, the show's organisers have postponed the opening until Friday.

The show was scheduled to begin today with a sneak preview for members of the media but high winds and sandstorms that reduced visibility down to three kilometers caused its postponement for a third day.

Because of the delayed start, organisers have decided to extend the show's hours. The show is currently scheduled to run on Friday and Saturday from 10am to 6:30pm.

Pre-purchased Tickets for Wednesday and Thursday will be valid for the weekend.

This year’s Al Ain Aerobatic Show is set to be the biggest and best yet, with more than 15 aerobatic and display teams from three continents taking part, complemented by a wide range of on-the-ground family activities.
