London Biggin Hill is announcing the creation of 2,300 new jobs at the airport within the next twenty years as part of its LoCATE strategy.

LoCATE (London Centre for Aviation, Technology and Enterprise) is a partnership of public and private sector organisations promoting London Biggin Hill as a primary centre for the aerospace industry in the capital. It sets out London Biggin Hillís vision for a sustainable future for both the airport and the local community by investing in infrastructure, skills development, training and job creation.

As part of the Mayorís Draft London Plan, London Biggin Hill is a designated Strategic Outer London Development Centre (SOLDC). The plan describes how business aviation will complement and contribute to Londonís economy. Mayor Sadiq Khan has said: ďLondon Biggin Hill has emerged as a leading business in the South East and is one of the most important pioneers of the business aviation sector in the UK . . . it is proving a very sound investment for those choosing to base there.Ē

Robert Walters, Business Development Director at London Biggin Hill Airport, says: ďAs part of our growth strategy we are aiming to break new ground on several major projects in 2018, including an on-site airport hotel and a London Aerospace and Technology College. These two projects will further strengthen our position as Londonís leading business aviation hub and will inspire the next generation of aerospace professionals.

ďAs the only dedicated business aviation airport within the capital, we truly are the gateway to London for the many international businesses interacting with the capital and LoCATE demonstrates the airportís ongoing commitment to London and the borough of Bromley.Ē
