Universal takes the long term view with Northolt opening
Northolt is said to be an excellent option for operators with business in central London, so Universal Aviation is very pleased to have opened a base there. MD Sean Raftery is determined, despite the COVID limitations.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at a social distance, and operations at Universal Northolt are now under way. Sean Raftery is pictured on the left, and on the right is Universal Aviation UK general manager Rue Ahmed.

Universal Aviation, the worldwide ground support division of Universal Weather and Aviation, is now fully operational and supporting business aviation missions at London’s RAF Northolt airport.

Universal Aviation UK – London Northolt is Universal’s second London-area ground handling location, joining the network’s London Stansted FBO.

“The addition of Northolt gives our customers even more operating flexibility when visiting the London area, especially in the age of COVID where many operators are making quick trips for essential business,” comments MD for the UK and Ireland Sean Raftery. “Northolt is an excellent option for operators with business in central London. It offers convenience to the city centre, a high level of security as a military airport and less congestion than other airports in the region.”

Universal Aviation UK – London Northolt is 35 minutes by car from Hyde Park. Universal is working closely with the Royal Air Force, which operates the airport, to continue easing accessibility to the airport. “COVID and the recent restrictions put in place by the UK government are currently limiting traffic,” adds Raftery. “We’re taking a long-term view of Northolt’s potential. As restrictions lighten and we move past the pandemic, we anticipate Northolt to become an increasingly popular airport option in London.”
