Information on ticket distribution
For the first time in the history of NATO Days in Ostrava & Czech Air Force Days, we will distribute tickets, the acquisition of which will be necessary to enter the venue and which will be valid for one day of the event only. On this page you will find a summary of information related to the entance regulation, that will be continuously updated.
Everyone who goes to the event will have to have a ticket already purchased and will have to meet the standard conditions for entry to the mass event according to the applicable hygiene rules. A test site will not be set up at the premises and tickets will not be distributed there. These will be one-time, ie after leaving the premises, re-entry will no longer be allowed.
Admission to the event will continue to be free, but due to extraordinary measures, the purchase of a ticket is associated with a service fee of CZK 15, which only serves to cover the costs of Ticketportal, which is the exclusive distributor of tickets.
When booking a ticket, it will be necessary to choose the method of proving infectivity that the visitor will use! The tickets are necessary to regulate the number of visitors, only 40,000 of them will be allowed in the venue per day, according to hygienic regulations. At least half of all visitors must have completed vaccination (at least 14 days) or provide evidence of covid-19 within 180 days of infection, the other half will need a valid test for infectivity, ie a negative PCR test not older than 7 days or a negative antigen test not older than 72 hours. One of these conditions must be met by all visitors over the age of six, children under the age of six will not even have to have a ticket.
Validation will not take even a minute of your time, but it will significantly speed up the check-in at the entrances to the venue for you and other visitors.
