London Heliport Shuttles Airplane Logo

A number of business jet operators and charter clients prefer to land and park at Oxford, then take one of our based helicopter shuttles into London’s Battersea Heliport, typically a mere 22 - 28 minute ride.

For larger jets in particular, the cost of the helicopter shuttle is often offset by the savings made through parking at Oxford rather than at one of the key ‘London’ airports like Luton where FBO ramp space is often scarce and non-FBO parking particularly expensive. If leaving their own aircraft parked up in the UK (and near London in particular) for more than a day, the savings through doing so at Oxford can be considerable. The option of the helicopter link becomes a very attractive alternative into the heart of the city.

Outside of the London TMA (terminal movement area) with no capacity or slot constraints, access to Oxford is generally easier and more flexible, whilst costs for access are markedly lower than the mainstream London options.

Passengers also often wish to interline with scheduled long-haul flights and likewise opt to land at Oxford and take the helicopter shuttle direct to airside to Luton or Heathrow for the fastest transition between the business jet and the airline gate – without the costs and constraints of trying to access those airports with their own aircraft.

Costs from Oxford*:

From £1,465 - £1,960 +VAT
From £1,440 - £ 1935 +VAT (20 minutes)
From £1,315 - £1,810 +VAT (20 minutes)
