Although there are almost two weeks to go to the opening ceremony, the Olympics airspace opens today.

The Olympics Prohibited and Restricted Zones come into force on 14 July and remain until 15 August, with smaller areas later covering the Paralympics.

The Olympic Games themselves run from Friday 27 July to Sunday 12 August, with the Paralympics from Wednesday 29 August to Wednesday 9 September.

The following additional visitors are expected over the period:
- an additional 500,000 visitors by air
- 70,000 overseas 'games family'
- around 20,000 media
- approx 3,000 additional business aviation flights
- approx 150 Head-of-State flights - not including any other ministers

On 10 March, the Institute's General Aviation Navigation Group (GANG), together with the Airspace & Safety Initiative (ASI), held the 'official' UK briefing on Olympic airspace restrictions. Presentations from that day can be downloaded from the RIN site below, with more info and updates available from the ASI link.
