London Southend’s Stobart Jet Centre to open 24/7 this summer

London Southend Airport’s private jet facility, Stobart Jet Centre, has revealed it will be the only FBO serving the London market to accommodate aircraft operators 24/7 this summer. This is due to night-flying restrictions coming into force at other London airports.

From June 1 to September 30, a combination of night-flight embargoes and the exceeding of noise quotas has resulted in restrictions on aircraft movements being enforced at Stansted and Luton airports between the hours of 11:00pm and 6:00am and 7:00am respectively.

Stephen Grimes, Stobart Jet Centre’s managing director, said, “We have invested heavily in making our facility the most comfortable and efficient to use for our VVIP passengers, and it is already being recognized by operators as one of the easiest for access into London.

“With aircraft parking space for as many as 12 Boeing Business Jets, the convenience of Southend Airport for central London is going to be enhanced further when we are the only FBO that can facilitate operators, with aircraft of all types, at night during the busy summer period.”
