Reaching central London by road is a daunting and stressful task. By chartering a private helicopter, you can reach central London in as little as 20 minutes from all the nearby airports.
As many of London's private jet airports (mainly London Biggin Hill, Farnborough, London Luton and London Biggin Hill) are not located close to the city-centre, a private helicopter charter can ease and expedite the transfer between the airport to your home address or office.
London City Airport does not allow helicopter landings due to noise restrictions - however VIP ground transportation can be arranged between Battersea and London City airport.
Battersea Heliport (also known as London Heliport) is London's only licensed heliport and is located opposite Chelsea Harbour on the south bank of the River Thames. Battersea's location makes it an ideal choice for onward journeys to West and Central London. Every year, over 12.000 flights take-off or land at Battersea.
Battersea provides a luxurious lounge for AlbaJet customers as well as customs and immigration facilities for international helicopter flights. No helicopters are kept at Battersea, so please allow for positioning time when making a last-minute request.
Located only a 20-minute drive from Kensington, Belgravia and Westminster, and 30 minutes from Mayfair and Covent Garden - chauffeur and private car arrangements can be made for an efficient onward journey.
Got an urgent business meeting in London? Hiring a helicopter can reduce your travel time significantly, by making point to point travel possible.
Battersea heliport is open seven days a week, from 07 a.m. to 11 p.m. (weekends and public holidays vary). Extended operating hours are possible with prior arrangement.
