London Oxford Airport welcomes first flight management company

Travion, a flight management company, has selected London Oxford Airport as its worldwide operations base – becoming the first operator of its kind at the location. The news comes following an announcement that London Oxford Airport finished 2016 as the sixth busiest London airport for business and general aviation, ahead of London City Airport.

With its new presence at the airport, Travion will handle the securing of slots and landing permits for inbound and outbound business aviation flights, as well as fuel and ground handling, sourcing discounted hotel accommodation, inflight catering, and concierge, transportation and security services.

Travion is the latest in a long line of new tenants joining London Oxford Airport since the start of the year.
