Private Jet Charter to Exeter Airport

Exeter Airport is located in the south of England, close to the city of Exeter. By car, the city centre is nine kilometres away. Around 850,000 passengers travel through the airport every year, including many who hire private jets in order to travel more comfortably from Exeter. The runway, measuring over two kilometres long, is equipped to handle flights to both domestic and international destinations.

History of Exeter Airport

Exeter Airport was officially opened in 1938. Its licence to operate as an airport was granted in 1937, but it took a further year until the airport’s terminal was ready. With the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939, the Royal Air Force (RAF) grounded all civilian flights and turned the airport into a military air base. Consequently, during this time it became known as RAF Exeter.

After the war ended, it took almost two years before the airport was handed over to the Ministry of Civil Aviation and restored to its original purpose. From 1947, it was once again possible to book private jet charter to or from Exeter Airport. In addition to structural changes, the introduction of new routes over the last decades have advanced the development of the airport. For instance, the runway was extended during the 1980s. In 1999, the new airport terminal was officially opened. The "Exeter Airport Environmental Policy" clearly lays out the various actions the airport is taking to be more environmentally friendly.
