UK Oxford Airport Offers Transatlantic Deals

 - October 18, 2010, 5:11 AM

The UK's Oxford Airport wants to make NBAA show goers an offer they'll find hard to refuse. First-time North American aircraft arriving there from a trans-Atlantic flight through the end of April 2011 will find just about everything they need from the airport priced at just $150 per item.

The "150 Deal" covers the following items for $150 each: landing fees for an aircraft up to the size of a Bombardier Global Express; all handling; parking for up to a week; crew accommodation per night in Oxford's five-star Randolph Hotel; car rental with on-site Enterprise; or limousine service into central London. As part of the promotion, the privately owned airport, which is located about 60 miles northwest of the British capital, is also offering a night in London's five-star Carlton Tower hotel for £150 ($230) and a 23-minute helicopter flight into London for £1,500 ($2,300), which it claims to equate to less than some other London airports' daily aircraft parking rates.

Oxford Airport lies outside London's congested terminal movement area. Its standard operating hours are from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. throughout the week, and the site offers a new private terminal.
