Coronavirus: London Biggin Hill Airport launches benefits package for charter operators


London Biggin Hill is launching a package of benefits to help charter operators who use the Airport over the next two months.

The benefits, which applies to all business jets whether based at the airport or visiting, are intended to help operators return to service quickly when travel restrictions are lifted.

Until 31 May 2020, for the price of a single landing fee operators will receive six landings as long as they are  all used on a single day. For visiting aircraft, the first arrival will be included within this total. They will also receive complimentary handling, two hours of aircraft parking free and have full access to crew support and the Airport’s briefing room

Branded “Return to the Skies” the airport said the benefits will help maintain aircraft airworthiness and keep flight crew training current during the coronavirus crisis. There are MRO services based at the Airport for Bombardier, Gulfstream, Textron Aviation, Pilatus and Dassault aircraft, provided by the OEM or by an authorized service center.

Robert Walters, commercial director at London Biggin Hill Airport said, “We remain fully operational for essential flights, but operators are facing many challenges during the Covid-19 crisis.

“Keeping aircraft and crew ready to restart operations is difficult but with our Return to the Skies initiative we are giving our clients access to the services they need. By pulling together like this, we can get our industry back on its feet as quickly as possible and support the global economic recovery.”
