London Battersea Heliport is conveniently located on the Thames, midway between Wandsworth and Battersea Bridges, just minutes from London’s West End and the boroughs of Knightsbridge, Mayfair, Kensington and Chelsea. It is the only centrally located landing option for helicopter charters to and from London.
Over 50 years of helicopter landings
Helicopters have been landing at Battersea since it opened in 1959. When the City of London floating helipad closed in 1985 the London Battersea Heliport became the only CAA licensed heliport serving London’s central boroughs.
The London Battersea Heliport is ideally located for helicopter charters to and from central London and has been the preferred vertical gateway for London’s VIPs, celebrities, politicians and sports stars for over 50 years.
The heliport at Battersea is licensed for use by all sizes of helicopter available to charter commercially, from the EC120 and Jetranger to the Eurocopter EC155 and the Sikorsky S76 and S92.
The heliport has been recently refurbished and offers excellent VIP facilities. There is also an onsite meeting room or a hotel right next door for passengers who are particularly time pressured.
Customs and immigration facilities are available onsite allowing direct access to London from locations in the near continent. These include Paris and Brussels in just over an hour and Amsterdam in approximately one hour and 35 minutes.
