Jetex is to take over as the FBO operator at London Biggin Hill Airport, marking the brand's 35th international FBO location and its first in the United Kingdom. Jetex London will be located in Hangar 510, taking over from Signature Flight Support, which has operated there since 2014, in August this year.

“London is a natural next destination for Jetex. We already have a strong presence in continental Europe with a flagship private jet terminal at Paris Le Bourget, and the new flagship Jetex London is a natural evolution of our operations. Jetex passengers will enjoy a seamless travel experience complemented by the greatest levels of luxury hospitality, unseen before in the market,” says Adel Mardini, founder and CEO of Jetex.

Jetex London will offer a suite of flagship services for passengers and crews travelling through the airport, including private lounges, retail and entertainment areas. Additionally, the terminal will house fully equipped boardrooms and shower suites.

“Jetex is a globally admired brand, and we are proud to have the company join our ecosystem of aviation businesses here at London Biggin Hill Airport. We know Jetex will provide an excellent continuity of service and we are looking forward to seeing them thrive,” adds Robert Walters, commercial director, London Biggin Hill Airport.

“We are very delighted to welcome this new partnership with Jetex, one of the top names in executive aviation, and are looking forward to operating in London Biggin Hill together. The airport is already one of the key points for Avia Solutions Group, as our subsidiary JetMS Completions is successfully running aircraft interior and exterior completions there. Thus, the partnership is opening even more opportunities for further business expansion as well as collaboration on future projects. We see great things ahead,” adds Vygaudas Ušackas, member of the board of directors at Avia Solutions Group, which owns the property.

The airport accounts for 23% of London's market share after Farnborough (31%) and ahead of Luton (22%), and is 15 miles from central London, with helicopter transfers taking passengers to and from the heart of the British capital in six minutes, and limousine transfers taking less than 50 minutes.

“We are pleased with our arrival in London. Jetex already has a strong presence in continental Europe with a flagship private jet terminal at Paris Le Bourget, and the new flagship Jetex London is a natural evolution of our operations. Jetex passengers will enjoy a seamless travel experience complemented by the greatest levels of luxury hospitality, unseen before in the market,” adds Mardini.

With natural materials, soft lighting and floor-to-ceiling windows, Jetex London is designed to feel like a warm, contemporary space. The 1,900 sqm private terminal will include several supremely comfortable lounges of understated luxury designed with passenger privacy in mind, a cigar lounge, retail and entertainment areas, fully-equipped boardrooms, shower suites and much more. Crews will appreciate a full range of on-site recreational and flight support facilities.
