Aircraft Valet & Cleaning Airplane Logo

Oxford Airport hosts a number of companies that provide professional aircraft valet and cleaning services as per the list below. The airport's (Oxfordjet) own ground handling team and Customer Services can provide toilet services, water, full galley replenishment and has an in-house wine cellar. Third party companies can also be bought in for acrylic window polishing. Leather cleaning, stain removal and treatments can be provided on request.

Our recommended valet and aircraft cleaning service providers only use approved aviation washes and polishes and all products, where possible, are silicone free.

Should your paintwork have deteriorated to the extent that it needs a respray or areas need to be touched-up or indeed you need new livery or logos, we have an on-site paint shop. For such work we would recommend Flying Colours who have considerable experience in the field, from light helicopters to larger business jets including the Queen's Flight and 32 Squadron aircraft.

If you wish for the airport to coordinate any such services on your behalf, call our Customer Services on 01865 290 660 or e-mail at
