England’s Coventry Airport Seeks New Life As Base For Private Jets

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Coventry, England — The chief executive of a Switzerland-based firm would like to used shuttered Coventry Airport for elite travelers and their private jets if it took over the site, according to a report by the BBC.

The news item stated that business support firm ADP had requested 30 days to look through the airport’s books. ADP chief executive Thomas Frankl told the BBC the airport site had “nice facilities” and a “great workforce potential”.

The airport at Baginton shut at the beginning of December. Passenger flights stopped there in 2008, but the airport continued handling freight until it closed.

Mr Frankl said if ADP bought out the airport he also hoped to attract the owners of private jets to base their aircraft there. He said: “It has got a very good infrastructure here already, which is quite unusual for a small regional airport.”
