SaxonAir has moved into its
new £6.5m Klyne Business Aviation Centre at Norwich International
their existing operations into one bespoke building and hangar space.
SaxonAir has experienced continued growth since it was established in 2007. The
new Business Aviation Centre will further develop and improve operating
efficiencies. It is the ideal handling facility for visiting aircraft and
provides business travellers with a first class facility to meet the demands of
the local business aviation market.
The new Business Aviation Centre comprises of a three-storey administration and
passenger handling facility sited between the two large aircraft hangars.
SaxonAir’s fleet of private jets and VIP helicopters now occupy one of the
hangars with staff located in its associated offices. The ground floor
facilities include the main reception desk, VIP lounge, flight crew rest room,
training facilities, conference room and offshore passenger handling
facilities. Several of the first floor offices have been leased to other
aviation related companies and there is considerable interest in the available
remaining space on the second floor.
Discussions are taking place with several offshore helicopter and oil & gas
operators regarding the lease of the purpose built second hangar and offshore
passenger handling facilities. This includes four check-in desks, x-ray machines,
seating for over 50 passengers and four briefing rooms. Outside, there are five

Colin Hancy, project manager for the Klyne Business Aviation Centre says, “Norwich Airport is an ideal central location for offshore operations and logistic support. With a mix of international and domestic roures and dedicated offshore helicopter operations, the airport is ideally placed for the expanding renewable energy sector as well as supporting the exisiting oil and gas infrastructure vital to our local economy. In my opinion the facilities are the very best available in the UK and will secure the business for both Norwich and the Airport for many years to come.”
“The demand for business aviation has grown in popularity as a new
generation of business executives prefer private aircraft charter as the
fastest, easiest way to travel enabling business schedules to be performed to
maximize individual time efficiency and overall company productivity” says
Chris Mace, managing director of SaxonAir. “Our new Business Aviation Centre is
a strong and visible expression of SaxonAir’s confidence in the local economy.”
