Harrods Aviation's London Luton and London Stansted FBOs and maintenance hangars will re-open on Monday 4th May. Air Harrods, the helicopter management business, will also fully recommence operations.

On the 27th March, in response to the UK government's COVID-19 guidelines, the decision was taken to temporarily close Harrods Aviation and Air Harrods. This was clearly not a commercial decision, says the company, rather one taken by the board to safeguard the welfare of its staff and customers and in the wider general interests of the country.

Harrods Aviation and Air Harrods has thanked all customers and partners for what it says has been their very generous understanding and support during what has been a demanding month long closure.

Initially hours of operation and staff numbers will be limited for safety reasons, but as the situation becomes clearer and aircraft movement numbers increase it is expected to get closer to normal operations by the summer months.

“We are confident we have in place the correct measures to ensure we can operate efficiently and safely at both bases," states Kerry Besgrove, operations director, “With new arrival and departure procedures in place, health screening and a very strict entry policy to our facilities, we feel the time is right to safely open once again our operation."

Managing director, Paul Norton comments: "I would like to thank our incredible workforce who, to a person, have been understanding and supportive during this pandemic. To both those who have been furloughed and those who remained working from a home environment, I thank you."
