Steels up at London Biggin Hill Airport

London – 23rd May 2017: London Biggin Hill Airport, the only dedicated business aviation airport within the capital, today announced the arrival of the steels for its new 60,000 sq ft hangar.

Robert Walters, business development director, London Biggin Hill says: “Construction of the hangar is really moving along and it’s fantastic to see the steels being installed at the site. This hangar is an important development for Biggin Hill and a significant part of our plans to meet the steadily growing demand for business aviation. It will be able to accommodate six G650s or six Global 7000s and is on track to be open by the end of the year.”

The new hangar is part of an infrastructure project to also include office space and a business aircraft parking facility, offering a combined space of 140,000 sq ft and will contribute towards the ambitious employment targets of 2,300 new jobs by 2030 set by the airport and the London Borough of Bromley.
