LONDON BIGGIN HILL READY TO WELCOME ACE ‘17 NEXT MONTH

London Biggin Hill Airport, the capital’s premier business aviation airport, is gearing up to host 2017’s Air Charter Expo on 12th September 2017. Dubbed ACE ’17, the event is the UK’s only conference and exhibition dedicated to the air charter industry.

Organised for the first time by the Air Charter Association (BACA), the event brings key networking opportunities to the best of business aviation. Over 80 exhibitors will present the latest innovations in their field, while a full programme of meetings, presentations and talks will tackle the big questions on the future of the industry.

Andy Patsalides, marketing manager, London Biggin Hill Airport, says: “As the London gateway for business, facilitating the many opportunities ACE ’17 will bring to those in business aviation is of paramount importance to us.

“BACA and London Biggin Hill share a forward-looking perspective on business aviation, and it is thanks to this collaboration that we have been able to bring together more than 20 business aircraft for attendees to step aboard, including several on their first display in the UK.”

Richard Mumford, chair, BACA, says: “Bringing the whole business aviation industry together for this valuable networking day is made possible thanks to London Biggin Hill’s extensive facilities, with the opportunity to fly directly to the event for visiting pilots and professionals. The six minute helicopter transfer to and from the heart of London also makes the airport ideally located for any London-based industry leaders that will be attending.”

Tickets are free-of-charge and open to air charter professionals, aircraft owners, operators and suppliers, passengers and potential passengers. Register to visit at www.aircharterexpo.com.
