Harrods finds solution for aircraft in deep freeze
There has been strong demand for de-icing services at Stansted, so Harrods Aviation thinks it is high time to invest in the right equipment. It also describes a lack of ‘efficient provision’ from onsite third parties.
Harrods will replicate at Stansted the de-icing service it provides at Luton.

London Stansted airport FBO Harrods Aviation has added aircraft de-icing to its list of services. With the purchase of an FMC LMD-2000 truck, Harrods will be able to offer this service to all aircraft types handled at its Stansted facility. With a 6,500 litre heated fluid capacity and a working height of up to 14 metres, the rig will be able to support even the larger cabin aircraft regularly seen at the FBO.

“As a full service FBO provider, we pride ourselves on owning and operating as much of our own equipment as possible,” states head of operations Dan Holian. “We believe this is imperative to provide the exemplary service we are globally renowned for delivering. At our Luton FBO, we have been offering an in-house de-icing service successfully for years. We can now offer our customers the same at Stansted. I would like to thank Clear Sky Aviation for the staff training and would like to assure all customers that this service will be offered in accordance with SAE Global standards.”

Harrods Aviation offers FBO services at London Luton and Stansted airports. Both bases have fully equipped hangars for aircraft maintenance and engineering.
