XLR Executive Jet Centres has accelerated its expansion strategy by opening a new corporate aviation center at Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport, UK.
XLR Liverpool will handle flights to Merseyside with luxurious new facilities as part of an investment with Liverpool Airport to upgrade its private travel experience. The 10-year deal has seen the company invest a six-figure sum in building a dedicated passenger lounge, crew rest facilities, a conference center, and a private parking area for business jets.
Managed by Regional & City Airports (RCA), XLR will strive to increase private use of the existing 2,285m (7,496ft) runway, which is capable of handling B767 and C17 (military) sized aircraft, providing direct links to the entire North West of England.
Chris Beer, XLR Director, commented, “Liverpool represents a key location in our strategy to provide top rank executive aviation centers across the UK. The city has a thriving cultural economy, two huge football clubs in Everton FC and Liverpool FC, and provides fast access to some of the UK’s most prosperous high-value residential areas.
“Our aim is to make the XLR Executive Jet Centre at Liverpool the natural choice for high-net worth individuals traveling across the UK and Europe via the North West for business or pleasure, and we intend to do that by offering an efficient, state-of-the-art terminal that meets the expectations and needs of the most sophisticated private passenger.”
