Coronavirus: Harrods Aviation temporarily closes FBOs


Harrods Aviation has shut both of its FBOs in the UK because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The FBOs at London Luton and London Stansted Airports have been closed since March 27 and their reopening reviewed on April 17.

Paul Norton, managing director of Harrods Aviation said, “This is clearly a very serious global situation, and as an organisation, we felt the right action to take was to close our operations at both bases.”

‘Using the philosophy of people before profit, the safety and wellbeing of our staff, our customers and the wider community becomes our primary focus. This decision has of course, not been taken lightly. We believe our customers will understand and appreciate the seriousness of the situation and our positive response to it.”
