NetJets has been approved by the London City Airport Authority to operate its Signature Series Global aircraft to and from London City airport. “NetJets is the first and only private aviation company to receive approval to operate Global aircraft in and out of a key airport in London,” remarks chairman and ceo Jordan B. Hansell. “We continue to offer our customers innovative, value-added differentiators that make NetJets stand out from its competitors. We are providing a unique service that no other private aviation company can offer at this time.”

London City has additional specified safety criteria for take-offs and landings due to its position in the heart of the city. Requirements include pilot training that results in accreditation, enhanced weather criteria, and adherence to strict noise abatement procedures. NetJets received accreditation by performing rigorous test flights with successful take-offs and landings at the airport in a Global. The company is now in the final stages of training all its Global crew members to use the airport.

“For customers who fly the NetJets Signature Series aircraft, this certification will further enhance the service offerings they receive, allowing them to fly from over 5,000 airports worldwide to the heart of London,” adds coo for NetJets Europe Mark Wilson. “The Global 6000 will be able to perform flights from London City to New York area airports with up to nine passengers.”
