MEBAA, Dubai – 10 December 2018: The London Heli Shuttle, operated by Castle Air at London Biggin Hill Airport (booth #437), is extending its fleet to 10 helicopters with the addition of a new AgustaWestland AW139.
The London Heli Shuttle was established in 2015 to offer the airport’s customers the fastest and most convenient route to central London. The service has been in high demand ever since.
Now, the addition of the twin-engine AW139 to Castle Air’s current fleet of AW109 Grands will further boost the number of transfers available at short notice. With a larger cabin, it will also provide a more comfortable journey into the capital.
Andy Patsalides, marketing manager, London Biggin Hill Airport says: “Taking just six minutes to the centre of London, our Heli Shuttle service has proved a real boon to our clients. In particular, those travelling long-distance from the Middle East, Asia Pacific and North America are benefitting from the fastest transfer to the City. With our extended operating hours, you can land from 6:30am and be in London in time for an early breakfast meeting.
“The new AW139 will enable Castle Air to keep up with the soaring demand for the service, as we continue to serve as the fast-track gateway for London and the City.”
