Airports like Farnborough only offer private jet service and for the majority of our chauffeurs this is their preferred airport for private jets.

Farnborough is easy to reach via the A3 or M3 and on a good day is less than an hour’s drive from Central London. Entry into Farnborough is not possible unless you have a PPR number, this acts as an entry code to access the private airport parking.

Once you walk into reception, it is more like being in a 5 star hotel, with a beautiful airline lounge where you can sit and relax and be served light snacks and beverages.

For our chauffeurs, they also get an exclusive lounge, where they wait until being alerted that their Clients are due to land.
