London night arrivals still possible at Southend as Mid East operators hit by operation restrictions

Posted 10 April 2018 · Add Comment

Business jet operators flying to London from the Middle East will be facing restrictions for night arrivals during the UK’s summer months – but one FBO will be operating to manage night flights.

London Southend Airport’s private jet facility, Stobart Jet Centre, will be the only FBO serving the London market, to be available to aircraft operators 24/7 when the restrictions come into force.
From 1st June to 30th September a combination of night flight embargoes and the exceeding of noise quotas has resulted in restrictions on movements between the hours of 23.00 and 0600 and 0700 being enforced at Stansted and Luton airports, making the recently refurbished Stobart Jet Centre the only FBO able to welcome private and business jets requiring easy access to London during that period.
Southend was voted Best London Airport 2017 by Which magazine for the fifth year running, is well below its nighttime noise quotas due to the consistently quiet profile the of the airport’s traffic.
Stephen Grimes, (pictured right)  Stobart Jet Centre managing director said, “We have invested heavily in making our facility the most comfortable and efficient to use for our VVIP passengers and it is already being recognised by operators as one of the easiest for access into London. With aircraft parking space for as many as 12 Boeing Business Jets (BBJs), the convenience of Southend Airport for central London is going to be enhanced further when we are the only FBO that can facilitate operators, with aircraft of all types, at night during the busy summer period.
Stobart Group unveiled expansion for the Jet Centre at the end of last year which included an uncongested ramp space adjacent to the FBO and hangar availability for the equivalent of six BBJs.
The Centre partners with Apollo Helicopters, for direct helicopter access to London from the FBO.
