The leading UK VIP helicopter charter service, Apollo Air Services got the first southern base - Cambridge City Airport. Apollo already has four bases in the north, in Carlisle, Leeds, St Andrews, Cardiff. The new addition of Cambridge, will make the company better placed to meet the growing demand for helicopter travel and service the south of the UK including London, the South Coast and European cities,such as Paris and Brussels. 

Cambridge Airport and Apollo Air Services have both experienced a sharp increase – more than 40 per cent - in enquiries for private charter flights compared to 2019 since lockdown eased, with half of these enquiries from first time customers. Cambridge is a small regional airport just minutes from the centre of the historic city, with fast and convenient links to London and the south and east of the country. 

The airport is known for its friendly, tailored, customer-focused service, with easy access to great destinations and superb charter flights to destinations throughout the country and Europe via its growing number of partners. 

It offers a state of the art FBO, with baggage scanning on-entry, making it as quick and convenient as possible, so passengers can go from the front door to their flight with the minimum of disruption. It is also the leading equestrian transport specialist.

 Airport Director, Kevan Craske, said: “We’re delighted to have Apollo Air Services within our partnership team and look forward to welcoming their customers for many years to come. There has never been a better time to charter flights and we see this partnership as offering passengers the very best travel experience, whether for busine ss or pleasure.”

Apollo Air Services’ Managing Director, Steve Graham, said: “We’re delighted to launch our new base at Cambridge City Airport and expand our offering in the south. We already have a bases in Scotland, Wales, and the north of England, and now we can better service the whole of the country and meet the growing demand coming out of London.  We are also seeing more enquiries for trips to Paris and northern Europe, as customers want to avoid commercial planes, and now from a distance perspective, this is more feasible and cost effective for both us and our clients.” 

Apollo began operating from its new Cambridge base at the beginning of August.
