ILA Berlin 25-29 April 2018

Post by lambo1784 »

Looking to go to the above late April in 2018 I believe.
Is there transport from the terminal to the show and does the static stay for the public days or does the good stuff go early like Farnborough?
Any info on entrance fee on public day?

Been there twice, flying in with Ryanair. Free shuttle busses from terminal to show-area. Most participants stay for the public days, and some extra Bundeswehr participants arrive for the weekend. Entrance fee I don’t remember...

Two years ago there were free shuttle busses from/to Schönefeld Airport and the Railway station next to the Airport (DB; S-bahn; U-Bahn). There was also a paid Bus shuttle (10€) direct from/to the ILA from/to Tegel Airport.

According to
http://www.spotterguide.net/planespotti ... -sxf-eddb/
their spot 18 was accessible during previous editions. It seems a good option for photography. Can anyone confirm?

Thanks, Peter
