Stobart Jet Centre opens at Southend Airport

Posted 19 January 2018 · Add Comment

Stobart Aviation has officially launched a major new executive jet fixed based operator (FBO) at London Southend Airport.



The new 'Stobart Jet Centre', is also expected to deliver a major boost to the capacity available for private flights into London, Europe’s busiest city for private aviation[1].  The centre is expected to cater for 5,000 flights per year by 2022.

Last night senior management hosted a launch party at the new terminal with 100 VIP industry guests who were given an exclusive tour of the facilities. Here are some images of the new centre.

The jet centre is another development at London’s growing Southend Airport which was ranked in 2017, the Capital’s best airport for the fifth year in a row.

Stephen Grimes, Managing Director, Stobart Jet Centre Limited, said: “Always at the heart of our thinking for this new private terminal has been to provide our customers with the utmost convenience, speed and comfort. We will be also offering the most competitive prices in the London business and private aviation market.

“The Stobart Jet Centre will give guests and pilots a smooth, premium experience because we can provide 24-hour availability and departure routes outside London’s crowded airspace.

“You can land or take off at any time, day or night, returning from business or leisure from any city around the world, with direct access to your aircraft from the terminal.

“We are absolutely confident that Stobart Jet Centre provides a unique environment and a refreshing, hassle-free alternative to London’s current, crowded private aviation terminals.”
