Notes to Editors:
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.
London Oxford Airport is ideally positioned as a viable choice for London beyond Heathrow, primarily targeting the north-west of the capital and the Thames Valley region. More than five million people reside within an hour’s drive of the airport with no other commercial airports within easy reach. Located just 40 miles (64km) from Greater London and with easy access via the M40 motorway, Oxford is served by the fastest and least congested of London’s key arterial routes. Chiltern Railways has also committed to a new rail link by 2012 connecting Oxford and Marylebone Station, creating a new station for Kidlington (Oxford Airport’s location) with regular services taking just 58 minutes.
