Jetex will operate the FBO in Hangar 510 at London Biggin Hill Airport (EGKB) under an agreement announced today with Avia Solutions Group. This is Jetex’s 35th international FBO site and its first in the UK.
“We are delighted with our arrival in London. Jetex already has a strong presence in continental Europe with a flagship private jet terminal in Paris Le Bourget, and the new flagship Jetex London is a natural evolution of our operations,” said Adel Mardini, Founder and CEO of Jetex.
Jetex London’s 20,451 square foot (1,900 square meter) private terminal will include passenger and crew lounges, a cigar lounge, retail and entertainment areas, conference rooms, shower and a flight planning area. Other amenities such as ground transportation, hotel accommodations, catering, and concierge services will also be available. The UK Border Force, which carries out immigration and customs checks, is already on site at the airport.
Biggin Hill is the second largest airport for private jet operations in the UK, with 23% of London’s market share. More than 90% of the airport’s traffic is intra-European, while 5% is long-haul flights, according to Jetex.
