Edmiston, the world leading yacht company, has taken over the title sponsorship of The London Heliport.
Coinciding with the heliport’s 60th Anniversary this summer, Edmiston has undertaken a major re-styling of both the interior and exterior terminal, including a complete repaint of the landing, take-off and apron areas. Effective 1st August, the Heliport will be known as The Edmiston London Heliport.
Edmiston Chief Executive, Jamie Edmiston commented; "We have made a long-term commitment to this key London gateway. For us, this is more than a branding exercise. Our aim is to bring the rigorous focus, attention to detail and teamwork that you would find on board a large yacht - to the operation of the heliport. Working in close partnership with the management and owners of London Heliport, our objective is to deliver the best possible experience for clients using the Heliport.”
“With this collaboration with Edmiston we are entering an exciting new era,” said London Heliport General Manager Simon Hutchins. “Edmiston is a prestigious luxury brand to align with and Jamie Edmiston has overseen a significant investment that has revitalised the whole look of the heliport.”
The London Heliport continues to thrive as the capital’s only licensed heliport serving business and private movements, police and medevac missions. It is home to The London Helicopter sight-seeing business and a number of helicopter charter tech companies. For the first six months of 2019 business and private movements totaled 4,401. This represents a 39% growth since 2012 when the Reuben Brothers acquired the heliport in February that year. Interlining with business jet activity continues to account for nearly 25% of movements with commercial operators departing London Biggin Hill, Luton, London Oxford, Farnborough and Stansted Airports.
