PremiAir dedicates AS355 and Sikorsky 76 to new shuttle
PremiAir has launched a new helicopter transfer service to meet private jet arrivals from the UK's key "London access" business aviation airports and whisk passengers to the London Heliport in Battersea.

PremiAir has launched a new helicopter transfer service to meet private jet arrivals from the UK's key "London access" business aviation airports and whisk passengers to the London Heliport in Battersea. "The London Heliport Shuttle service recognises the fact that some 40 per cent of PremiAir's traffic now connects with private jet arrivals into UK airports," says David Langton, sales and customer service manager.

"It is a good time to launch as the heliport has had a major facelift this summer which coincides with 50 years of operation." PremiAir is dedicating the alternatives of an AS355 Twin Squirrel helicopter, which seats up to four passengers, or a Sikorsky 76 vip helicopter, which can comfortably seat up to nine, to the service.

Airports served will include Luton, Farnborough, Biggin Hill, Oxford, Stansted, Heathrow and Gatwick. PremiAir is targeting charter brokers, operators and regular business users.

The service operates with a fixed-price tariff, based on a one-way trip to or from the London Heliport. Charter rates start from just #1,695 plus VAT for a one way trip from Biggin Hill to London Heliport. PremiAir is also providing services to AAG Global network customers from May 2009 after announcing it had become the first European member operator of Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation-owned network.

The PremiAir fleet includes five Sikorsky 76 vip aircraft and the company manages several other executive helicopters for third party corporate or individual owners. "We have a 20-strong high quality portfolio of executive helicopters, turboprops and business jets," says Langton.
