London Biggin Hill Airport has launched a coronavirus recovery package for operators called “Return to the Skies” aimed at helping operators maintain business jet airworthiness and keeping training current during the pandemic. 

The goal is to allow flight operations to ramp up quickly once travel restrictions are lifted, it said.

The package applies to jets based at London Biggin Hill Airport or visiting. For the price of a single landing fee, the package includes six landings to be used in a single day, complimentary handling, 2 hr. of free aircraft parking and access to crew support and the airport’s briefing room.

The offering will make it easier for operators to access the airport’s maintenance, repair and overhaul services for Bombardier, Gulfstream, Textron Aviation, Pilatus and Dassault aircraft, airport officials say. It will also help operators keep their flight crews current and ready to begin work as soon as conditions improve. 

Return to the Skies begins immediately and runs through May 31.
