James Dillon-Godfray has returned to London Oxford Airport with responsibility for Business Development. He heads the company’s participation at the NBAA Convention this week at the Las Vegas Convention Centre on fuel partner Air BP’s Booth C10835.This is familiar territory for James who has represented the business at international trade shows and important local community events for 14 years.

In his new role he will also be supporting commercial development of The London Heliport at Battersea, London’s only commercially licensed heliport serving the capital. “It is good to be back and at such an opportune time too,” said James. “We have some interesting new tenant companies to support, including Gama Aviation PLC, Excellence Aviation, our new Bombardier Challenger/Global Express MRO provider; Up and Away, and another 17 established businesses like Airbus Helicopters UK – all focused on aviation services. I will be working with Managing Director, Andi Alexander to help them facilitate their growth at Oxford, as well as exploring our own future expansion plans for the airport.” “As the nearest ‘commercial’ airport to the north west of London, we are evaluating how we position ourselves within the UK’s established airport infrastructure and this will involve ongoing dialogue with the planning authorities and numerous other stakeholders,” he added. (London Oxford Airport already offers significant advantages over its peer airports in terms of time taken to travel to the north west of London, ease of access, longer opening hours, along with recent investments in new hangars and buildings, plus its ILS and primary and secondary radar installations.)

It has also just recently benefited from the opening of a brand new railway station, Oxford Parkway, just eight minutes’ drive from the airport, providing high speed services to London Marylebone Station every 30 minutes. The airport is offering free shuttle services from its Oxfordjet FBO for all flight crew and clients arriving by business aircraft. “We are in one of the best catchment areas in the country with no commercial airport less than an hour’s drive away, so for overseas visitors headed for Kensington through to Notting Hill and Holland Park, for example, we are also easier to access by car (via the M40), than the other London airports. We are also ideally placed for the scenic Cotswolds, where several Hollywood names are investing in property,” he added.

At NBAA London Oxford Airport will be promoting 50% reductions in landing fees and parking fees for first time users (redeemable with a voucher from James Dillon-Godfray on the Air BP stand). In a unique offer too, ANY visiting flight crew and aircraft owners can enter London Oxford Airport’s new draw for some top prizes, including Breitling watches, Ray-Ban sunglasses, fine wine and a box of Oxfordshire ales. The offer launches at the airport on 1st December and runs through until the end of February.

London Oxford Airport is wholly owned by the Reuben Brothers. Their investment activities span private equity, as well as real estate ownership and development. Businesses include, data centres, race courses, media, public houses, hotels, mining and metal storage. At the end of February 2012 the Reubens purchased the London Heliport at London Battersea, the UK’s only CAA licensed heliport. The Heliport is a 22-minute helicopter ride from London Oxford Airport. London Oxford Airport has been the fastest growing airport for private business aviation in the United Kingdom over the last five years and aspires to be recognised as a new option for commercial airline services within the Thames Valley region, North West of London.
