In June, pilots will be able to use a new business aviation terminal at Oxford Airport in the UK, the first phase of planned improvements by Reuben Brothers Holdings, which bought the airport from BBA Aviation last July. The new FBO terminal features separate lounges for pilots and passengers, rest areas, showers, a crew kitchen, bar, conference rooms and customs and immigration facilities. Oxford Airport has plenty of ramp space and has expanded its hours of operation to 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. on weekdays and extended its weekend hours as well. Driving time to London’s West End is less than one hour, and costs for business jet services are lower than at airports closer to London. Oxford Airport is also outside the London TMA (terminal maneuvering area).
