Leading yacht brokerage company Edmiston has announced a new, and first-of-its-kind, collaboration with Europe’s leading private jet airport, Farnborough Airport.
Following on from the successful partnership with Edmiston London Heliport, from today, Farnborough Airport’s terminal will become a fully immersive Edmiston experience for guests travelling through the airport.
With the addition of a sweeping red sail across the terminal’s welcome wall and the creation of The Edmiston Lounge, where travellers can relax and unwind before flying, the Farnborough guest experience is now steeped in the Edmiston lifestyle. From July, the terminal’s striking air-side radar tower will also showcase the Edmiston branding.
The Edmiston Lounge is a fully bespoke design, filled with rich, textured fabrics and furniture to cocoon guests in high-end comfort. It ensures a seamless, relaxing travel experience from start to finish. The space pairs natural upholstery with pops of Edmiston red, sleek coffee tables in wood, marble and chrome and leathered panelled walls. Private jet travellers will be enveloped in the Edmiston world through beautiful photography, a travel library, objets d’art and fascinating yacht models, while they enjoy a range of delicious refreshments in The Edmiston Lounge.
Discretion in the lounge is guaranteed by a sweeping curved wall that frames the space, playing on the movement of waves and air by using wooden slanted blades that rise up in differing lengths to create punctuated glimpses of the space. From July, on moving airside, guests will be wowed by Edmiston’s creative branding placement, which wraps two sides of the airport’s radar tower. The banner scales 18m high and 18m wide, making it the largest ever air-side advertisement in a UK airport.
Edmiston and Farnborough Airport offer the very best in private travel, spanning sky and sea, and this new collaboration allows guests to explore the excitement of yacht travel as they await their jet departure. Travelling through Farnborough Airport is an assured way to avoid crowds, save time and reap the benefits of personalised travel and five-star service, just 12 minutes by helicopter from the Edmiston London Heliport for ultimate convenience or just 40 minute’s drive from London. The award-winning terminal offers multiple lounges, private meeting rooms, refreshments, a dedicated concierge and even gaming consoles to keep younger travellers entertained. The enhanced Edmiston lounge offers even greater comfort and customer service on the way to effortless boarding.
Farnborough Airport welcomes the world’s leading jet operators who offer a wide range of ways to fly privately. From fractional aircraft ownership to ad-hoc charter flights, the world of private jets has never been more accessible. With operators, brokers and booking apps, booking private jet travel is easy. The passenger can just step onto the aircraft and relax.
Simon Geere, CEO of Farnborough Airport, says “We believe there is great brand synergy between Edmiston and Farnborough Airport in offering exceptional service and an unrivalled private travel experience. We are delighted to launch our collaboration with Edmiston and we look forward to welcoming clients travelling through our airport as they wait for their departure.”
Jamie Edmiston, Chief Executive of Edmiston, says “Guests travelling through Farnborough Airport can now experience a slice of the Edmiston lifestyle whilst waiting for their flight. We will offer them the greatest service and comfort when using the jet terminal, much as they would receive on one of our yachts, providing a completely seamless service from sky to sea.”
