London Biggin Hill Airport
London Biggin Hill airport has a new executive charter operator. Concierge Aviation is launching services with an eight-seat Hawker 750 business jet. Starting this week, Concierge is conducting its activities under a UK air operator’s certificate. The company has fleet expansion plans and is also offering aircraft management services. Managing director Glen Smith used to work for Air Partner.
London Biggin Hill Airport, to the southeast of the UK capital, will be in the thick of the action in late July and August as it deals with hundreds of additional movements arising from corporate- and executive-aircraft operators flying to the UK for the summer Olympic and Paralympic Games.
RAS Completions has expanded its niche with the opening of RAS Interior. The expansion includes new workshops and design offices.
Among the more recent projects was the full interior refurbishment of a Citation that included new carpets, refurbished seat upholstery, new sheepskin crew-seat covers and some refurbishment of the interior cabin shell. The aircraft also got new exterior paint.
Rizon Jet recently opened its long-planned FBOs at London’s Biggin Hill Airport and Doha International Airport. Both the UK and Qatar facilities will provide handling support and they plan to extend their maintenance portfolios. Both facilities have been designed expressly to meet the preferences of the growing number of Middle Eastern business aircraft users.
Qatar-based aviation services provider Rizon Jet has expanded from its flagship Doha facility with the opening of its second FBO, located at London Biggin Hill airport. The new 130,000-sq-ft facility offers fueling, ground handling and customs clearance and features a state-of-the-art-hangar that can accommodate bizliners such as the ACJ and BBJ.
Former Biggin Hill Airport director Peter Lonergan and Comlux Aviation Group president Richard Gaona are the recipients of the 2011 European Business Aviation Awards, which are given jointly by the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) and U.S. National Business Aviation Association (NBAA). The awards were presented here at EBACE on Tuesday during the opening session.
London Biggin Hill Airport (Stand 759) will open its new 4,800-sq-ft hangar next month. Situated next to the main terminal building, it will also offer 54,000 sq ft of additional ramp space for aircraft parking, with plenty of space to accommodate widebody jets. Several fully serviced offices are available for rent in the hangar and also will be available on a short-term basis for operators.
