Commenting on the new partnership, Bruce Norfolk, Chief Commercial Officer at Osprey, said:

Osprey:Open launched in March this year, and the concept behind the platform was to enable a cross-industry improvement in risk management. Since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis, we have continually developed :Open and added new updates and features in response to the global pandemic. We are delighted to announce the new partnership with WINGX and would like to express our thanks to the team for taking such an important role in enabling the platform to deliver further crucial data to the industry during this particularly challenging time.

Richard Koe, Managing Director at WINGX, added:

WINGX is tracking the day to day evolution of global flight activity operated by business jets, cargo aircraft and scheduled services as the Covid-19 crisis evolves. Our purpose is to capture and analyse the market impact of changes in utilisation, and relate that to the local perspective of our customers across the aerospace supply chain through our portfolio of tailored interactive dashboards. Through our collaboration with Osprey, WINGX will provide free access to all those wishing to keep track of the high level trends in flight activity in every country worldwide.

WingX Activity Report for UK Biz Av to 18th May

Please find link button to the latest WingX Activity Report and separate aircraft segment departures graphs.

Business aviation (business jet and turboprop) activity in the UK is 55% below normal trends for the period. Since the trough in activity in mid-April, average daily activity has picked up by 15%.


Harrods Aviation are proud to announce that following a temporary closure to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all staff, all business units have successfully reopened. This includes the FBO’s at Luton and Stansted, engineering at each base as well as the helicopter management and charter service Air Harrods.

Paul Norton, Managing Director commented, “ Since the easing in the lockdown scenario here in the UK it has been pleasing to see so many customers returning to our facilities, their trust, understanding and loyalty at these difficult times cannot be praised higher. We have been quite surprised at the number of bookings we have taken from both regular and new operators, especially those operating smaller air taxi type aircraft. The lack of clarity on the 14 day quarantine continues to hinder our long range business and I look for certainty on this subject in the coming days.’

Commenting on the staffing situation and a change to ‘the new normal’, Kerry Besgrove , Operations Director said “Staff continue to respond well to the challenges and have adapted well to our new stringent cleaning regime and temperature checks before anybody can enter our buildings. We recently published a comprehensive risk assessment to ensure all visitors and staff can feel safe in our facilities, whilst this additional work has changed the way in which we work, I have been impressed with the flexibility and willingness of my great team to adapt. There are inevitably challenges that we face, not least of which is finding hotel accommodation for crews. However we have now successfully sourced several options for crew at both bases. Covid-19 adapted Ground transportation is also available.”

Due to the fact that Harrods Aviation operate and own all equipment required to handle any size of aircraft, we are not restricted by third party availability. The only third party service we have actively looked to outsource has been aircraft cleaning and sanitisation. We have expert, qualified teams on standby for every request in this very specialised and currently important service.
