More flights are expected to be offered at the newly rebranded London Oxford Airport thanks to Icejet’s decision to expand its presence there.

The Reykhavik-based airline, which operates 14-seat and 19-seat Dornier 328 jets at London Oxford, is intending to open office space and hangarage at the airport ahead of potential new flights.

Steve Jones, London Oxford Airport’s managing director, explained that it was increasingly being seen as an attractive alternative London airport.

"We are seeing signs here that…Oxford is going to be extremely well placed with a whole range of aircraft now based at the airport and these include a growing number of entry level jets" he said.

Mr Jones went on to say that one of the main reasons for the airport’s expansion is the growth of private and owner flying.
