Air Harrods celebrates milestone anniversary at Stansted Airport

Air Harrods is celebrating its 20th year of operation at London Stansted Airport this November.

Air Harrods was founded when the former owner of the famous Harrods Knightsbridge store expanded his personal helicopter fleet and decided to offer luxury helicopter services to the open market for charter.

The fleet then consisted of three aircraft - one Sikorsky 76A+, one Sikorsky 76B and an Aerospatiale AS355F2 (Twin Squirrel) - and Air Harrods began its journey as a commercial operator and aircraft management company, completing over 100 operations in its first year.

By the tenth year of operation, Air Harrods averaged over 1,000 flying hours per annum and operated up to six helicopters.

The business changed direction in its 15th year and the focus turned more towards management of private aircraft with charter playing a secondary role.
