Jetex will operate the FBO at Hangar 510 at London Biggin Hill Airport (EGKB) under an agreement announced today with Avia Solutions Group. This marks Jetex’s 35th international FBO location and its first in the UK.

“We are pleased with our arrival in London. Jetex already has a strong presence in Continental Europe with a flagship private jet terminal at Paris Le Bourget, and the new flagship Jetex London is a natural evolution of our operations,” said Jetex founder and CEO Adel Mardini.

Jetex London’s 20,451-sq-ft (1,900-sq-m) private terminal will include passenger and crew lounges, a cigar lounge, retail and entertainment areas, conference rooms, shower suites, and a flight-planning area. Other amenities such as ground transport, hotel accommodation, catering, and concierge services will also be available. UK Border Force, which carries out immigration and customs controls, is already on site at the airport.

Biggin Hill is the second-largest airport for private jet operations in the UK, garnering 23 percent of London’s market share. More than 90 percent of the airport’s traffic is intra-Europe, while 5 percent are long-haul flights, according to Jetex.
