UK’s Cambridge Airport Offers Free Landing

ExecuJet Aviation has been operating the FBO at Cambridge Airport for the past year.

The UK’s Cambridge Airport and its FBO partner ExecuJet Aviation are celebrating the first anniversary of their cooperation by offering a free landing for all operators who buy between 5,000 and 10,000 liters (1,320 gallons to 2,641 gallons) of fuel. Operators buying more than 10,000 liters will qualify for “heavy discounting,” according to representatives of the airport and ExecuJet at the Schedulers & Dispatchers show. The free landing offer is valid for any movement before the end of 2013.

It is now 12 months since ExecuJet Europe started operating the FBO at Cambridge. In June 2012 it introduced a free pet travel service that meets UK government requirements. During last summer’s London Olympics, the airport had extended opening hours and saw a 30-percent increase in handling traffic.

Meanwhile, Cambridge Airport owner Marshall Aerospace has come to San Antonio to promote its new one-stop-shop business aviation service brand Jetability. In addition to its maintenance services, the company is seeking to expand its charter operations and also expand into aircraft sales.
