Biggin Hill starts work on new hangar

London Biggin Hill Airport on Monday 26 April started work on a new hangar and apron complex close to the executive passenger terminal and control tower. The hangar will be 120 by 40m with 30 by 10m office space adjoining and be capable of housing Airbus Corporate Jet or Boeing BBJ aircraft. In front of the hangar will be 5,000 sq m of apron with parking for up to six Gulfstream 5s.  The hangar should be completed by spring 2011.

London Biggin Hill is another airport on the outskirts of London, inside the M25 motorway that can accommodate business jets.  The airport has used about half of the available movements and is looking to increase the number of executive jets it handles in a year.  It is the only non slot co-ordinated airport in London and has the added advantage of being a Port of Entry.

The airport regularly handles the larger business jets such as Airbus Corporate Jets, Boeing 727 and Bombardier Challenger 850 aircraft. www.bigginhillairport.com
