Following the easing of quarantine rules for visitors from the EU and US, London Biggin Hill airport's Heli Shuttle service is preparing for a sharp increase in demand over the next few months.

Operated by Castle Air, the service offers the airport's customers the quickest route to central London with a flight time of six minutes. Transatlantic passengers travelling to and from New York are also able to take advantage of the New York Heli Shuttle at London Biggin Hill's sister airport Teterboro, which provides a six minute flight directly to Manhattan's East 34th Street Heliport. The 'air-bridge' creates the fastest and most effective way to travel between the two cities.

Passengers using the London Heli Shuttle can be assured that strict COVID-19 safety measures are in place throughout their journey. Aircraft are fitted with protective windows that separate pilots from passengers, and the shuttle also issues COVID-19 safety kits to all passengers. London Biggin Hill's contactless travel initiative also minimises contact between staff and passengers, ensures strict hygiene procedures, health checks and the use of personal protective equipment.

The Heli Shuttle has a dedicated, airport-based fleet of six-passenger Leonardo AW109s and 12-passenger AW139s that fly single- and dual-pilot under IFR and VFR.

London Biggin Hill airport head of marketing Andy Patsalides says: “The easing of quarantine rules for those arriving from the US and EU will result in many more business and private passengers arriving at London Biggin Hill. With its six minute flight time to central London and COVID-19 safety measures, we expect demand for the London Heli Shuttle will continue to increase.”
