Best Private Jet Airports in London and New York

London’s best airports for your private flight 

London Biggin Hill Airport (EGKB)

One of the most used airports for London private jet charters. The airport is located on the south side of London. After their first charter a private jet or flight, passengers can be in the city centre in around 1 hour by car. We would recommend a helicopter transfer to central London which can take roughly 6 minutes!

Farnborough Airport (FAB)

A dedicated business aviation airport with easy links to London. The airport offers a 5 star exclusive experience to jet charter passengers who are travelling on private flights to and from London. Use Farnborough for that ultimate luxury experience for your London private jet charter.

Luton Airport (EGGW)

The airport is located on the northside of London and is very popular with private aircraft and jet charters. However, by car the journey can take nearly 1.5 hours traffic to reach the centre of London.

London Heathrow Airport (EGLL)

Situated in west London Heathrow is one of the busiest airports in the world. Various travel links make central London easily accessible but gaining access to private jet charter slots may be difficult, so it is best to book in advance.

For New York City there are actually 12 airports you could land at. However these two are our recommendations based on experience:

Teterboro airport (TEB)

Although passengers actually land in the state of New Jersey when landing at Teterboro airport, you are minutes away from Manhattan, NY. The runway is 7000 ft in length and has landing capability for turbo prop, light jet, midsize jet, super midsize jet or heavy jet.

John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK)

Located in the Queens area of New York this airport is one of the busiest international airports in the world. Although predominantly used for commercial flights the airport has more than enough capacity for jets from London to New York. 

Both New York private jet airports offer VIP airport transfers in the form of chauffeur driven cars or helicopters to reach your final destination in New York City.

Empty leg flights London to New York

A private jet empty leg is essentially a cheap one way flight that is part of a jet’s onward travel plans or repositioning for further flights. This concept creates the opportunity for clients to enjoy a private jet to New York or London at a much cheaper cost than a full independent charter. However, there are many factors which clients need to be made aware of when thinking about empty leg flights. 

Firstly, the client is not in control of the flight schedule and will be pretty much told when the departure times are so therefore not convenient if the passengers have certain plans. Furthermore, operators can also cancel at the last minute if a charter request arises which makes more commercial sense.

The type of jet cannot be selected for an empty leg flight as it will be down the operator’s planning. If the passengers require a larger heavy jet to New York and the empty leg is a super midsize jet then the flight experience may not be perfect.

As a company we do offer empty leg flights to both New York and London but we would always advise clients to have peace of mind and book a dedicated charter request. Although cost is significantly less as a company we would state the saving you make financially may end up costing more in time wasted.
