Significant growth throughout 2018 will be reported by Farnborough this week at the annual National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention and exhibition in Orlando.
Among its achievements, Farnborough, exhibiting on Stand 3409, was acknowledged this year as the first carbon-neutral business aviation airport in the world (BTN 9 July).
Officials are also celebrating an increase in air traffic movements of more than 15% for the nine-month period from January – September 2018 compared with the same period last year with traffic from the US particularly strong at +4%.
Farnborough Airport handles some 27,000 flights a year with approval to increase this number to 50,000 by 2019 and is equipped to cater for a wide range of aircraft types including business and corporate jets from both Boeing and Airbus.
Officials will also be making the point at NBAA that as the only dedicated business aviation airport in the UK, Farnborough is designed specifically to offer a one-stop shop for operators in the sector and with 240,000sq ft of climate-controlled hangar facilities and 1.2m sq ft of ramp space can accommodate both based and transient aircraft.
The NBAA gathering begins tomorrow, Tuesday, and runs until Thursday. Alison Chambers will be reporting on the event in next week’s BTN.
