Landmark Aviation has established a temporary FBO at the London-area Southend Airport. In a partnership with the privately owned airport, the U.S. handling group will support business aircraft operations through the period of the London Olympic Games. The deal runs through October 1 and both parties hope that it could lead to a more permanent presence for Landmark at the airport, which is almost 40 miles from the center of the UK capital. Southend Airport has its own rail station with eight direct services each hour to Stratford, close to the main Olympic Stadium.

FBO stands for fixed-base operator. FBOs have a general aviation terminal and typically hangar(s). They provide aircraft fueling and numerous other aircraft services.
