London Biggin Hill Airport is launching a package of services to help operators maintain aircraft airworthiness and keep flight crew training current during the coronavirus crisis, so that flight operations can be ramped up quickly once travel restrictions are lifted.

Branded ‘Return to the Skies’, the package applies to all business jets, whether based at London Biggin Hill Airport or visiting. Included within the price of a single landing fee, operators will receive the following benefits:

  • Six landings, all to be used on a single day (for visiting aircraft, the first arrival will be included within this total)
  • Complimentary handling
  • The first two hours of aircraft parking free
  • Access to crew support and the Airport’s briefing room

Through this initiative, it will become easier for operators to access the world-class MRO services based at the airport for Bombardier, Gulfstream, Textron Aviation, Pilatus and Dassault aircraft, provided by the OEM or an authorised service centre. Furthermore, as even furloughed employees are still permitted to continue training, it is expected that Return to the Skies may help operators keep their flight crews current and ready to start work immediately when conditions improve.

Return to the Skies is available immediately to enquiring operators and will run until 31 May 2020.

Robert Walters, Commercial Director, London Biggin Hill Airport, says: “London Biggin Hill remains fully operational for essential flights, but operators are facing many challenges during the Covid-19 crisis. Keeping aircraft and crew ready to restart operations is difficult but with our Return to the Skies initiative we are giving our clients access to the services they need. By pulling together like this, we can get our industry back on its feet as quickly as possible and support the global economic recovery.”
