Essen Consolidates UK Helo Interests

 - March 28, 2007, 6:03 AM

Following a “long and successful” relationship between the two companies, the von Essen Group acquired UK business aviation charter operator PremiAir Aviation Group last month. PremiAir already manages von Essen’s helicopter and business jet fleet, as well as London’s only commercial heliport at Battersea, which von Essen purchased for about $95 million in February. Under the latest deal, the southwest London heliport will be incorporated into PremiAir, which operates from Denham and Blackbushe aerodromes.
