Harrods Aviation has reopened its FBOs at London Luton and Stansted after a temporary closure that started on March 27 to meet the UK Government’s Covid-19 guidelines.
The maintenance hangars have also reopened and Air Harrods, its helicopter management business has also resumed operations.
Hours of operation and staff numbers will be limited for safety reasons, but as the situation becomes clearer and aircraft movement numbers increase operations are expected to get closer to normal during the summer months.
Kerry Besgrove, operations director for Harrods Aviation said, “We are confident we have in place the correct measures to ensure we can operate efficiently and safely at both bases. With new arrival and departure procedures in place, health screening and a very strict entry policy to our facilities, we feel the time is right to safely open once again our operation.”
Paul Norton, managing director of Harrods Aviation said, “I would like to thank our incredible workforce who, to a person, have been understanding and supportive during this pandemic, both those furloughed and those who remained working from a home environment, I thank you.”
