 - October 4, 2006, 8:05 AM

The UK’s Lydd Airport is trying to attract business aircraft with a new executive facility operated by FAL Aviation. The airport, 60 miles southeast of London, has also added an ILS, resurfaced its 4,937-foot runway and installed new runway lights. Standard opening hours at Lydd, which is rebranding itself as London Ashford Airport, are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., but movements are permitted outside these times by prior permission. The privately owned airport plans to extend the runway to 5,900 feet next year.
