Transport in London
PremiAir is expanding its fixed-wing activities, by establishing a new charter and management operation at London Biggin Hill Airport together with an additional maintenance facility.
British environmental protesters targeted business aviation today when they blockaded the main entrances to the London-area airports at Biggin Hill and Farnborough. The demonstrations were an offshoot of a week-long protest staged at London Heathrow Airport. At Biggin Hill, passengers and crew had to be temporarily diverted through alternative entrances while police forcibly removed protesters who had chained themselves to the gates.
