London Heli Shuttle readies for reopening of transatlantic market

Following the easing of quarantine rules for visitors from the EU and US, London Biggin Hill Airport’s Heli Shuttle service is preparing for a sharp increase in demand over the next few months.  

Operated by Castle Air, the service offers the airport’s customers the quickest route to central London with a flight time of just six minutes.

Transatlantic passengers travelling to and from New York are also able to take advantage of the New York Heli Shuttle at London Biggin Hill’s sister airport Teterboro, which provides a six-minute flight directly to Manhattan’s East 34th Street Heliport. 

Passengers using the London Heli Shuttle can be assured that strict Covid-19 safety measures are in place throughout their journey. 

Aircraft are fitted with special protective windows that separate pilots from passengers, and the shuttle also issues Covid-19 safety kits to all passengers. 

Andy Patsalides, head of marketing, London Biggin Hill says: “The easing of quarantine rules for those arriving from the US and EU will result in many more business and private passengers arriving at London Biggin Hill Airport.

“With its six-minute flight time to central London and Covid-19 safety measures, we expect demand for the London Heli Shuttle will continue to increase.”
