London Biggin Hill says it is expecting an exciting 2019, hot on the heels of the latest WingX Advance report identifying the airport as one of the fastest growing in Europe over the past 12 months.
During 2018, London Biggin Hill grew by 12 percent, in contrast with a one percent decline in business aviation activity for London airports. The London Heli Shuttle service, extension of the opening hours, competitive handling fees and charges, and the absence of slot restrictions has fueled this success, with much of the activity stemming from the charter market.
Robert Walters, business development director, London Biggin Hill Airport says: “Following significant investment in recent years, we have had an extraordinarily successful 2018 and finished the year on a particularly strong note. During December, we led the London market in terms of charter requests and saw a big increase in large cabin aircraft movements of more than 25 percent.
“We have a number of projects coming to fruition during 2019 and we are thrilled to be starting the year on such a positive note. We have a fantastic offering here at London Biggin Hill and are looking forward to welcoming more customers and aircraft in the next twelve months.”
