Flexjet to Farnborough

Farnborough Airport, on the M3 motorway 30 miles south-west of London, and the home of the world-famous airshow, has a new major tenant.

Flexjet, one of the world’s largest providers of fractional jet ownership, has moved its Tactical Control Centre – the operational heart of its European business – and office space for its operations and other support teams, to within Farnborough Airport’s Meadow Gate building from its previous base in St Albans, Hertfordshire.

The relocation contributes to the airport’s impressive number of 50 companies based on site and its longstanding history of driving economic growth and local employment in the region. With 80% of staff living within a ten-mile radius of Farnborough Airport, it is a major regional employer. During the worst of the Covid pandemic the airport remained fully operational and points out that instead of making redundancies it took the opportunity to hire into new positions.
Flexjet European Managing Director, Marine Eugène, said: “Our move to Farnborough Airport represents an important milestone in our European expansion and generates a multitude of synergies and benefits for our team and our owners alike. Flexjet and Farnborough Airport have a shared ethos for excellence in both operations and service, so we are delighted to be forging this closer partnership”.
