Travion, a flight management company, has selected London Oxford Airport as its worldwide operations base – becoming the first operator of its kind at the location. The news comes following an announcement that London Oxford Airport finished 2016 as the sixth busiest London airport for business and general aviation, ahead of London City Airport.
With its new presence at the airport, Travion will handle the securing of slots and landing permits for inbound and outbound business aviation flights, as well as fuel and ground handling, sourcing discounted hotel accommodation, inflight catering, and concierge, transportation and security services.
Travion is the latest in a long line of new tenants joining London Oxford Airport since the start of the year. Others include Hullo Aircrew, a pilot app company; HeliGroup, which offers PPL training and Cabri G2 sales; and Cirrus Flight Training. The airport’s Oxfordjet FBO is in place to handle the majority of business aviation flights.
James Dillon-Godfray, head of business development, London Oxford Airport, said, “It’s an exciting time for Travion and we are delighted they have chosen our airport from which to operate. Their selection is a confirmation of the desirability of London Oxford Airport as a home for youthful and entrepreneurial businesses.”
Karla Deir, managing director of Travion, added, “Oxford has a huge reputation all over the world for its high standards in education and business. To maintain our own high standards, we will deliver to a discriminating clientele, the operators, the kind of service and support they expect for their respective aircraft owners or charter customers.”
