aag and london biggin hill launch new york heli shuttle
June 21, 2018
London Biggin Hill and Associated Aircraft Group (AAG), the premier executive helicopter company, announced the launch of the New York Heli Shuttle, establishing even closer links between the US and UK business capitals.
Industry-leading AAG, which has been operating for more than 25 years, has the largest fleet of Sikorsky S-76® helicopters in the northeast United States. The company will run the six-minute Heli Shuttle transfer from London Biggin Hill’s sister airport, Teterboro, directly to Manhattan’s East 34th Street Heliport.
John Gow, General Manager, AAG says: “We have seen how successful the London Heli Shuttle has been for London Biggin Hill and we are excited to be bringing this option to New York, through Teterboro Airport, giving passengers the fastest route between the two cities.”
Robert Walters, business development director at London Biggin Hill, says: “The London Heli Shuttle has been a game-changer at our airport, allowing passengers a quick, six-minute transfer to the city Centre. With Teterboro the same time by helicopter to New York City, it is fantastic to be able to mirror this service with AAG in the United States and form an effective ‘air bridge’ between the two cities.
“It is especially good news for charter brokers and those who regularly book travel between New York and London, as the process of travelling between the two city centers is now much simpler. Passengers can end the working day in Manhattan, take the New York Heli Shuttle to Teterboro, board their jet to London Biggin Hill and, with our extended operating hours, arrive at 6.30am. They then walk two paces across the ramp to meet the London Heli Shuttle, enabling them to be in their offices in time for an early breakfast meeting.”
