The only CAA-certified heliport in London has been renamed the NetJets London Heliport under a partnership announced today with NetJets Europe. Under the deal, the heliport will also feature “extensive branding” for both NetJets and its sister company Executive Jet Management Europe within the terminal and around the landing site.

According to the fractional provider, the heliport is a “key piece of infrastructure” for those flying privately in the UK and is a “prime link” between the city and surrounding airports that NetJets Europe serves. In fact, the number of interlining flights from the heliport with onward private jet flights—at airports such as London Stansted, Biggin Hill, Farnborough, Luton and Oxford—increased by about 20 percent last year, NetJets said. The heliport also recently celebrated its 500,000th movement over the course of its 59-year history.

Meanwhile, NetJets Europe said that this year has begun with a “strong period of growth.” The operator has recorded a 4.9-percent year-over-year increase in flights in the first quarter, with an accompanying 8.2-percent jump in passengers flown. Flights departing from the London area also rose 5.9 percent in the quarter while arrivals during the same period climbed by 6.5 percent.
