Changes in the Air at PremiAir
UK-based helicopter charter specialist PremiAir has added another Eurocopter EC 155 to its fleet, bringing its total to 17 executive helicopters under management, including Sikorsky S-76s, Eurocopter AS 355 Twin Squirrels and a Bell 222. In addition, the company is in the midst of a major redevelopment of its heliport at Battersea, London’s only such CAA-licensed public facility. Acquired by PremiAir’s owners last March, the 14-story site will feature a luxury 70-room hotel and an executive aviation center that offers panoramic river views from its conference rooms and VIP lounges. The new facility is slated to open next spring, to coincide with the heliport’s 50th anniversary.
