Stobart Aviation

Following an extensive upgrade, the Stobart Jet Centre at London Southend Airport, will now offer a full range of FBO facilities with the focus being on speed, comfort and smiles. 

Stobart Jet Centre understands the need for a service that meets your demands whenever and wherever you want, so have provided a service that meets these needs in terms of speed, convenience, comfort and support for aircraft and crew.

One of the Jet Centre’s main advantages is the speed it takes from the moment you arrive at the Airport to boarding your plane -  they are open 24 hours, seven days a week, 364 days of the year, something no other FBO can offer.  The Jet Centre also offers a VIP lounge with complimentary catering, refreshments and business services, supported by friendly and professional staff to cater for all your needs and to escort you to and from the aircraft.

Stobart Jet Centre also recognises the need to have facilities for aircraft and crew, an essential factor when deciding to fly to an airport. It can offer complete support for aircraft - from fuelling services and de-icing to oxygen refill to push back aircraft start capability. For the crew the Jet Centre provides a hotel and ground transportation booking service, weather and flight planning facilities, private crew quarters with food and refreshments, and access to state of the art computer facilities.

Finally, Stobart Jet Centre has the most competitive landing, parking and handling prices compared to all the other London airports. For example, to park a Boeing business jet at London Southend Airport for 24 hours will cost £1,000 compared to seven times that at London Luton Airport (around £7,000).
