A Milton Keynes MP visited Cranfield Airport to see how business is taking off.
Cranfield was one of the UK’s designated airports during the 2012 Olympic Games and saw an increase in small business aircraft during the period.
Milton Keynes South MP Iain Stewart, who sits on the Transport Select Committee wanted to hear more about the airport’s plans for the future.
Mr Stewart, pictured left, was shown around the airport’s upgraded hangar and reception area by airport director, Jason Ivey.
Mr Ivey said: “Due to our close location to both London and Milton Keynes, Cranfield Airport is ideally situated to appeal to the business jet customer.”
Mr Stewart said: “With the current demand for airspace and airport development in the South East of England utilising an already established site such as Cranfield will help contribute to local and international business going forward.”
The airport supports the economy by welcoming air passengers heading for Silverstone – a 12-minute transfer away–- during the British Grand Prix.
