Biggin Hill-based aircraft management and air charter company Oryx Jet is now offering helicopter charter as an additional method of transportation and onward carriage to complement its existing fleet of executive jets.
Oryx Jet ceo Mike Russell says: "We are excited to include helicopters within our growing fleet. Trips can be completely customisable to our clients' specific requirements, allowing us to continue to provide an unparalleled vip service. This may well include free helicopter transfers for our charter customers from many London airports to and from Biggin Hill.
"Offering more choice to private business and leisure charter services locally and internationally, our privately-chartered helicopters can replace long waits in traffic, thus increasing productivity, while covering a great distance in a fraction of the time."
The company's existing Hawker, Falcon 50, and Challenger 604 fleet is complemented by the addition of single and twin turbine engine helicopters. The AS355 Twin Squirrel fleet consists of a F2 and the N model which are night capable IFR helicopters. The EC120B is a single-engine helicopter which features a wide bodied cabin, a state-of-the-art ergonomic cockpit and a sizeable hold, the company reports. Russell adds: "All our aircraft have a reputation for excellence. Being able to offer the comfort of private helicopter travel to our customers ensures we can offer what our clients want the most – safety, security, speed, reliability and privacy. We are confident the latest additions to our fleet will prove popular with air charter customers old and new and be chosen by clients for both business and leisure trips."
