Nick Bradley, the authority's cabinet member for regeneration, said: "This weekend promises to be a fantastic occasion for all the family.

"Swansea is the place to be and our advice to visitors is to make sure they set out early to make the most of what's on offer.

"There will also be flight simulators so people can have a taste of what it's like to be one of the pilots they will be seeing performing during the day."

Swansea council has also set up a special "tag your tots" system for lost children, with wristbands parents can give to their children with contact details on.

They will be available from event information points.
