With the exterior now complete, outfitting of the interior is really starting to take shape. There is no better time for us to be investing in London Biggin Hill Airport’s infrastructure, and we look forward to welcoming new customers as early as Christmas.”

The airport’s new facilities will contribute toward its employment targets of 2,300 new jobs at the airport by 2030.

London Biggin Hill Airport is located 12 miles from central London and offers VIP handling, a choice of FBOs, extensive hangarage, and support and maintenance services for all ranges of business jets.
