New Photo Exhibition at London City Airport Celebrates 50 Years Of The Private Jet

All visitors to London City Airport’s main terminal will enjoy a glimpse of the private jet lifestyle this December. The airport is exhibiting the winning images from a recent photography competition – launched by PrivateFly.com, the private jet booking service, to mark the 50th anniversary of the private jet*.

The photographs will be on display in the upstairs departure area, before security. The exhibition will show the winners in the categories of Ground, Air, Detail, Speed and Crew, chosen by a judging panel of leading names in aviation and travel photography including Jessica Ambats, Craig Easton and Nick Meers.

Adam Twidell, CEO of PrivateFly, commented: “We have launched this exhibition as a stunning, visual celebration of the private jet - an iconic symbol recognised as the pinnacle of air travel. It has been 50 years since the 1963 maiden flight of the Lear Jet in the USA and the next 50 will see many exciting innovations, from biofuels to supersonic private jets.

“London City is the perfect location for the exhibition – Europe’s most efficient and impressive private jet airport, with a unique 'heart of London' location.

“But as London City’s Jet Centre speeds its private jet passengers through in as little as 90 seconds, there wouldn’t be much time for them to view the photography there! So airport visitors can visit the exhibition in the main airport terminal. It’s a great opportunity to showcase private jet travel to a wider London audience.” 

Darren Grover, Chief Operating Officer at London City Airport, said: “We are proud to serve London’s business community, whether they fly by airline or private aviation. Private jets have been a very visible part of life at LCY since the Jet Centre opened in 2002, serving everyone from business people and politicians to celebrities and royalty. We are delighted to mark this milestone in private jet travel.”
