Cambridge Airport now the UK home for ExecuJet

ExecuJet, majority owned by Dermot Desmond, formerly of London City Airport, is now fully operational at Cambridge Airport, which has become the Zurich-based organisation’s UK home.  The impressive Cambridge facility includes integrated hangars and extensive management facilities.  ExecuJet will continue to function at London City, the move acknowledging the apron space limitations at the dockland airport.  It now manages 10 aircraft based in Britain and 50 in mainland Europe.

 “We see this step as an integral part of expanding our UK presence,” said Cedric Migeon, Managing Director, Execujet Europe.  “It is an excellent alternative destination for London-based traffic and especially for travellers to and from the US, as the location lies directly on the flight path that avoids London’s busy airspace.”  He pointed out that the Cambridge facility has generous hangar space and provides 24/7 capability ‘on demand’.  During the London Olympics it is only one of just five regional airports with a 24-hour slot allocation. 

On a group basis Execujet now manages over 150 aircraft in six regions – Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.  North America is for the future it says, aircraft regularly crossing the Atlantic, the Group having strong relationships with US and Canadian operators. www.execujet.net
