Around an hour from the west end of London, London Oxford Airport hosts well over thirty aircraft and helicopters available for private charter with seating from three to nineteen passengers. From helicopters flying at 150mph to jets cruising at over 550mph, one can fly to a heliport in the centre of London in 20 minutes or as far as New York or beyond – the choice is yours.
London Oxford can handle larger transcontinental aircraft from Gulfstreams, Globals and Lineages on the private jet side to 95-seat regional airliners such as the Avro RJ/146, ATR and Dash-8 family, enabling larger group charters. It is now possible to fly in larger groups for Major Local Events with the new runway length.
Oxford is also approved for the importation of domestic pets (Cats, Dogs, Ferrets) under the DEFRA /Animal Health PETS Travel Scheme.
Ad-hoc charter of private aircraft can afford the user with unparalleled convenience reaching thousands of destinations throughout Europe, in many cases closer to one’s ultimate destination than most airlines can offer. You choose who you travel with, when you go, where you go, when you return with the flexibility to be a little bit early or late as your needs dictate. The value of just the management time saved on a day-return trip around Europe or the UK, leaving conveniently from Oxford, can often be greater than the costs of alternative means of transportation, be it via train or airline. Add to that the potential to avoid overnight hotel costs and the benefits become even more apparent.
Charter of aircraft from London Oxford enhances productivity immeasurably, avoiding congestion and the hassle of using the mainstream commercial airports with less stress and virtually no inconvenience. As a very quiet regional airport outside of the congested London airspace zone, Oxford is less prone to delays than airports within the LTMA (London Terminal Manoeuvring Area)
Newly incorporated in late 2013, SpireJet aims to offer private jet charter, management and consultancy from its base at Oxford airport, just five miles north of the City of Dreaming Spires. To this end we have purchased a Cessna Citation Bravo, registration G-SPRE, which has completed a program of extensive improvement and is available now for charter in the public transport market.
SpireJet seeks to deliver a personal, luxurious and utterly dependable service.
