The newest competitor in London’s business aviation market has demonstrated it is already a major player by posting a 25% year on year increase in traffic.

New figures confirm that London Southend Airport is increasingly the airport of choice for business jet travellers.

London Southend Airport’s Head of Business Aviation, Hannah Lo Bao, said: “We offer private jet passengers a number of unique advantages that other London airports cannot compete with and that is why ever more people are choosing us.”

With just a 55-minute car journey from the City to the airport, London Southend is one of themost convenient business jet centres for the capital. On arrival vehicles are able to directly access the ramp, meaning an average time of car to airborne of just 5 minutes.

London Southend is open 24-hour, 7-days a week, with no slot restrictions. Its short aircraft taxi times and a position outside the congested London airspace mean valuable savings in time and money.

The airport also has some of the most competitive landing, parking and handling prices in the London area.

Hannah added “London Southend Airport is the smart and time efficient choice for business aviation and we have capacity available. So if you have not already experienced the best small airport in Britain, why not give us a try?”
