Before you visit NATO Days

16.09.2022, 12:00

Based on our experience from NATO Days in Ostrava & Czech Air Force Days in previous years, we would again like to inform you about security measures, which you should be aware of before you come to the venue of our show. 

Since the beginning, we have primarily focused on increasing security standards at the show, therefore Visiting Regulations for Leoš Janáček Ostrava Airport, where the event takes place, have been in effect for years. Moreover, Code of the Event is also available and we believe that it will contribute to fulfilling our primary goal which is the long-term satisfaction of visitors, participants and partners.

We have also prepared generally valid recommendations and information for you:

  • Plan your journey to the event with enough of time reserve so you will arrive in advance (traffic jams are very likely)
  • Consider travelling without any large backpacks and other luggage.
  • Provide your children with ear protection and a card with contact details for responsible adult. We do not recommend participation of very little children.
  • Take water and a snack with you. There will be stalls with refreshments in the area, but it is always good to have a reserve
  • The weather can be unpredictable, so we recommend that you bring sturdy shoes for potentially waterlogged terrain and a raincoat - it is forbidden to enter the area with umbrellas. However, we hope that rather a sunglasses will be necessary
  • Install the NATO DAYS 2022 app on your phones which offers an overview of basic information, a map of the area and an updated program (which will not be available in paper form)
  • Visit your favourite ATM and collect your money before the event, although this can vary from stallholder to stallholder, we expect that payment by card will most likely not be possible
  • You will be able to pay in Czech crowns, Polish zlotys and euros at the car park and by the info booths
  • For better orientation, please have a look at the map of access roads to the venue, map of the venue itself and location of each of the sectors (marked with different colours and numbers) as well as the location of exits. You will find your way around more easily (all available through this page)
  • Pay attention to the announcements via loudspeakers, NATO Days Radio on frequency 95.2 FM (where you can also listen to the commentary of the event through your mobile phone) and on the big screens. Please, notice guiding signs placed at the venue
  • The event premises will be open at 8:30
  • The central car park will be open from 06:30
  • No anti-covid measurements are in place

In order to enjoy the excellent programme of NATO Days, we recommend limiting number and size of your luggage in your own interest. The less backpacks and luggage will have to be checked at the gates, the more comfortable and smoother will your entrance be. We have prepared a set of measures which, in cooperation with you, will contribute to this aim:
