The ultra modern new passenger terminal at The London Heliport in Battersea is now officially open for business.

The heliport is operated and managed by PremiAir, one of the UKs leading executive helicopter services companies, on behalf of the von Essen Group, which owns the heliport, together with Hotel Verta, a new luxury hotel due to open in September which adjoins the impressive passenger terminal.

The new heliport development, which has been ongoing for two years, will also provide valuable additional helicopter parking capacity, a totally rebuilt and upgraded control tower and modern facilities for the heliports fire and rescue team.

Since it opened in 1959 it has handled more than 450,000 helicopter movements and continues to provide a vital communication link into the heart of London. Heliport users fly in from locations throughout the UK, Ireland and Northern Europe. It also provides an important additional base and refuelling point for Londons police and emergency services helicopters which have a vital role in supporting and protecting the London community.

Were incredibly excited about the new passenger terminal, said David McRobert, PremiAirs Group Managing Director. From a business aviation perspective it is now a superb facility and in conjunction with Hotel Verta, it really will provide heliport users with immediate access to an exceptional range of on-site services that are unique in the business aviation world.

The new terminal features sound-proofed and air-conditioned passenger lounges, meeting rooms, conference facilities, a customer drop off area for quick and easy access, underground secure parking and a dedicated heliport reception area to enhance passenger privacy and discretion.

The London Heliport and Hotel Verta will combine to form Londons Vertical Gateway - the first integrated hotel-heliport solution in Europe. von Essen had remarkable vision and drive to purchase and develop the site, which we believe will set the standard for executive helicopter travel worldwide. Were delighted to be part of this exciting project and were looking forward to the benefits it will bring to executive helicopter charter clients and owners, particularly in Londons important run up to the 2012 Olympics, added McRobert.
