The UK’s Coventry Airport has opened a new executive jet center and, in a bid to boost business aviation traffic, offered free ground handling to operators during the month of July. The privately owned airport has decided to focus on business aviation and air freight as its two core activities after being denied permission to develop a new terminal for airline passengers.

The new executive jet center features passenger and crew lounges, work areas for pilots, meeting rooms, a shower and a refreshment area. The Wi-Fi-connected building also has office accommodation for based operators.

Coventry Airport, which is located 95 miles north of central London, has no requirement for slots and can receive traffic between 6:30 a.m. and 1 a.m. on weekdays and between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekends. It is conveniently located for access to the surrounding freeways connecting central England with points north, south, east and west. Marshall Aerospace, which owns and operates Cambridge Airport, is providing ATC services for Coventry.
