Surpassing its own record of 2018, Farnborough Airport set a new one, reaching the highest ever number of total annual movements! For the full year 2019, Farnborough Airport saw a year-on-year increase in air traffic movements of 5.3%. For December 2019, the airport recorded an 11.6% increase in movements for the month, with initial forecasts indicating this positive trend is set to continue in 2020. Specifically, air traffic movements to and from the U.S. experienced significant growth during the year, with an increase of 15% year-on-year. In the same period, traffic to and from Europe saw a 6% increase.

The airport has also introduced its new brand identity following the recent acquisition. The new brand both embodies the airport’s philosophy to consistently offer a five-star service and reflects the award-winning architecture of the airport’s facilities with its iconic shapes and curves.

“Our performance in 2019 underpins the important role Farnborough Airport plays as Europe’s leading business airport. It is clear that customers continue to see us as the business airport of choice in this region,” said Brandon O’Reilly, CEO Farnborough Airport. “This success is a testament to the dedication of all our employees and the service they provide to our customers day in, day out.”

2019 was another important year of milestones for Farnborough Airport, including the acquisition of the airport by Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets. The airport also hosted a coalition of business aviation organizations from around the globe for the sustainable aviation fuel initiative event, “Fuelling the Future”, and was named a winner at the IEMA (The Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment) Sustainability Awards 2019, further underlining the airport’s ongoing commitment to responsible and sustainable development.

Farnborough Airport currently handles more than 30,000 flights per annum and is equipped to cater for a wide range of aircraft types, including Boeing Business Jets and Airbus Corporate Jets. As the only dedicated business aviation airport in the UK, it is specifically designed to offer a one-stop shop for business aviation customers, and with 240,000 sq ft of heated hangar facilities and 1.2m sq ft of ramp space can accommodate both based and transient aircraft.
