London’s Biggin Hill Airport (Stand 230) is an important location for business aviation operators going to and coming from the Middle East, who will be glad to know that the airfield has recently upgraded its air traffic control voice communication control system (VCCS) to enhance ATC performance and integration, especially during emergency situations.
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.
Jet Aviation at London Biggin Hill Airport recently became the first company to be named by the Bromley Borough Chamber of Commerce as one of the best startup companies in South London. The first-time award recognized Jet Aviation for its “outstanding contribution toward helping the area to become one of the most successful business communities in the UK.” Jet Aviation opened its Biggin Hill FBO in 2001.
