Biggin plans development
London Biggin Hill Airport has published a draft of its master plan for small scale development over the next 10 years. The proposals follow a government report, published a year ago, which concluded that small airports in the south-east of England have an important role to play in meeting local demand and relieving pressure on the region’s main airports.

London Biggin Hill Airport has published a draft of its master plan for small scale development over the next 10 years.\rThe proposals follow a government report, published a year ago, which concluded that small airports in the south-east of England have an important role to play in meeting local demand and relieving pressure on the region’s main airports.\rAmong other things, the plan is to strengthen business aviation at the airport, maintain its current service for light aircraft and pilot training, allow both home-based and visiting aircraft operators to fully utilise the airport’s operating hours, and to ensure the airport develops within the acceptable environmental limits. \rThe proposals would lead to the airport handling up to 500,000 passengers a year. Total flights would amount to about 90,000 per year and no night flights are proposed. The plan is to improve transport to the airport and offer a shuttle service for passengers to the local town centres and train stations. The airport is consulting over the next two months with a wide range of organisations and a full copy of the plan is available at the airport’s website: www.bigginhillairport.com
