Private jet operator and aircraft management company Air Charter Scotland is adding a Cessna Citation M525 to its fleet, positioned out of London Biggin Hill Airport.
The six-passenger light jet is under the management of Jet Agent, the Biggin-based aircraft sales, management and acquisitions specialist.
“The intention is to place more aircraft with Air Charter Scotland under charter this year,” said Anatoly Parkhomchuk, managing director at Jet Agent.
Derek Thomson, chief operating officer of Air Charter Scotland, explained: “Thanks to this strategic new partnership, we are pleased to add a second London home at Biggin Hill Airport and base aircraft, complementing our established London Luton base.
“London Biggin Hill is well located for London, it boasts attractive opening hours and is increasingly popular as a dedicated business aviation airport,” he added.
Robert Walters, commercial director at London Biggin Hill Airport, said: “Air Charter Scotland’s choice of London Biggin Hill to strengthen its connection to the capital reflects the calibre of our service and the importance of our location to growing businesses.”
Headquartered in Glasgow, Air Charter Scotland will mark its 20th anniversary in June.
It has a fully worldwide operation, with the creation of Air Charter Scotland Europe in January 2021 and a new European Air Operator Certificate with an initial two aircraft – a Cessna Citation M252 and a Bombardier Challenger 350.
The company is a member of the British Business and General Aviation Association and The Air Charter Association, where Derek Thomson is a board member.
