London Oxford Airport recently installed what it says is a “latest generation” radar system and has had its runway’s weight-bearing strength verified. It also took delivery of a new fire tender, an investment of £500,000.
The airport is home to seven charter companies and five MRO support businesses. Last year, the airport’s business aviation traffic increased 18 percent (jet traffic was up 31 percent), while traffic increased just 5.3 percent throughout Europe during the same period.
London Oxford, which is now the fifth busiest business aviation airport in the UK (just behind London City Airport), is exhibiting at the NBAA show for the first time.
