London Oxford is Europe's fastest growing business aviation airport news
25 April 2011

London Oxford Airport saw an increase of business aircraft movements, year-on-year, by 31% as also its overall business aviation movements by 18% over the past year. This is in stark contrast to the average 5% increase recorded by the EU27 (European states) over the same period.

Jet fuel sales at its business aviation facility oxfordjet during the period were up by 19%.

Speaking at a media briefing last week, newly appointed managing director Chris Orphanou said the airport is now handling an average 20 business aircraft movements a day, equating to approximately 7,000 business aviation movements a year.

''And with some 35 business aircraft regularly 'living' at the airport, this makes Oxford Airport the fastest growing for business aviation in the UK,'' he said.

The only decline in activity for a specific sector is in the number of light recreational aircraft movements, down about 11%, year on year, reflecting the general decline in the light general aviation sector during the on-going recession.

According to James Dillon-Godfray, business development director, ''Not only is Oxford one of the UK's favourite UK tourist destinations outside London, but London Oxford Airport is also the ideal choice for Wembley events, and specifically the rowing at Windsor. The airport's location provides rapid access to London, the Thames Valley, south east and the UK's central business region.''
