Boris Island Airport Plans Dismissed
— Sep 9 2014
Azzura Charters were pleased to hear that the plans for a new airport in the Thames Estuary were dismissed by the governments independent commission on aviation on the 2nd September 2014.
Azzura Charters, based in Kent, have always been supportive of expansion at either Manston Airport or Lydd Airport. With the recent closure of Manston Airport, comes the expansion of Lydd Airport with works already underway to increase the length of the current runway.
The larger, already congested, airports of Heathrow and Gatwick still remain contenders for expansion with the possibility of either a 3rd runway or runway extension at Heathrow or a 2nd runway at Gatwick.
For the private jet industry chartering a private jet in or out of Heathrow and Gatwick comes at a premium price for landing and handling as well as being heavily governed by air traffic congestion and finding available slots.
When chartering a private aircraft the smaller regional airfields such as Biggin Hill, Farnborough and RAF Northolt can prove a popular alternative to the Commercial London Airports.
