 Biggin Hill Airport is proud to confirm that Platinum Air 2000, one of our based charter and air taxi operators are launching a new scheduled service between Biggin Hill and Blackpool, starting on Monday 5th March 2001.

 The service will run once a day on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays arriving from Blackpool at 0800hrs and departing back to Blackpool at 1800hrs.  Platinum will be operating an 18 seat Jetstream 31 aircraft; a twin engine pressurised turbo prop aeroplane that is a modern executive aircraft favoured by regional operators.  It is a quiet aircraft with good environmental performance and already operates in and out of Biggin Hill on a regular basis for ad hoc charter work.  It is known as the commuter aircraft of the regional airline industry. 

 

This new service is now the fastest transport link between the two cities and fares are in line with those offered to first class rail passengers, offering important time savings for business travellers.  Combine that with the comfort of an express check-in up to 5 mins before departure, VIP Lounge and executive coach transfer from Biggin Hill to Victoria. There is also ample free car parking for those passengers who prefer to make their own way.  With similar facilities at Blackpool, it isn’t hard to see why this route will really take off! 

 

Biggin Hill is only 12 miles from Central London and train services from Bromley South and Orpington railway stations take just 17 minutes into the City.  Both stations are just a 10 minute taxi ride from London’s premier business airport, offering express integrated transport services.

Airport Marketing Manager Julie Black comments: “We are delighted that Platinum are extending the range of their operations to include this scheduled service.  There are very strong business links between the North West and London, particularly in the financial services and insurance sectors.  This new service provides a fast and exclusive link to the heart of the City.  It will compliment our other scheduled service, the Opal Aviation Le Touquet route very nicely indeed.”

 Platinum Air 2000 is the vision of Captain John Mason, a commercial pilot with over 10 years charter experience.  Captain Mason adds: “Our reputation for quality and reliability is unrivalled in the charter business and we look forward to extending the same standards to our scheduled passengers.” 

For more information on the service and to book your seat, contact Business Travel Plus on 01253 471047.  As Platinum’s official IATA booking agent, Business Travel Plus offer state of the art ticketless travel, simply issuing passengers with a reference number that can be quoted at check-in where our Executive Aircraft Handling team will issue a boarding card and check baggage.  Then passengers can go and relax in the VIP lounge where they can enjoy complimentary refreshments and newspapers before their flight.
