London Biggin Hill is gearing up for another landmark year in 2018 as it announces resident business Interflight is expanding its maintenance capabilities.
Biggin-based Interflight has increased its maintenance approvals capability with the addition of the Hawker 400XP, Beechcraft 400a and Nextant 400XT type ratings, and has also unveiled its newly refurbished hangar. EASA Part-145 approved Interflight offers a range of services, from all scheduled and non-scheduled maintenance, to inspections, repairs and AOG support, in addition to air charter and aircraft management services.
Andy Patsalides, Marketing Manager at London Biggin Hill Airport, says: “Our airport is fast becoming the primary centre for business aviation in the capital, with a variety of aerospace companies choosing to base themselves and grow their businesses here. Biggin Hill is ideally located to support anyone requiring maintenance, charter, flight planning or any other business aviation services in London and the South East.
“Some exciting developments are lined up for London Biggin Hill this year, as our growth continues to accelerate. After a remarkable 16% year-on-year hike in departures in 2017, compared to the European average of 4.2%, we anticipate 2018 will be another milestone year.”
Lee Sugden, Director of Engineering at Interflight, says: “We’re delighted to add the new maintenance approvals, which covers about 600 aircraft worldwide. On top of our additional maintenance approvals our new hangar is the latest chapter of the Interflight transformation, following new offices for the charter and management division as well as new aircraft added to our fleet.”
