Jet Aviation London Biggin Hill has completed refurbishment of its passenger lounge and enlisted an international team of handling experts to support the local workforce during the London Olympics.

"We are doing everything in our power to ensure our customers enjoy the highest service standards that they have come to expect at Jet Aviation - despite the increased traffic," says Judith Moreton, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation London Biggin Hill, which is based 20km (12 miles) from central London.

The facility's dedicated maintenance operation is also bringing in additional line maintenance specialists from Gulfstream, who will be at the facility throughout the Games, as well as a central 24/7 on-call aircraft-on-ground team, says the company.

Jet Aviation Biggin Hill provides FBO services, maintenance, avionics installations, refurbishment and exterior painting. With a hangar area of 2,600m2 (28,000ft2), the operation is an authorised service centre for the Dassault Falcon 900 and 2000 families, and is approved for the Hawker 125 series, the Cessna Citation 525, 550 and 560 family, and the Bombardier Challenger range of super-midsize and large-cabin business jets.
