“It had been our hope that by August, the spread of COVID-19 would be minimized and our event would be able to proceed,” says Jim Reith, President of the Abbotsford International Airshow Society.

“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.”
