RizonJet FOB Private Terminal
Biggin Hill, United Kingdom
Rizon was an Arab/Qatari charter corporate private aviation founded in 2006 and headquartered in Doha, Qatar. It focused on the chartering private jets and luxury travel, while it also provided lease of office space and conferencing facilities. In addition to its Qatari operation, it also had operations in Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom.
Rizon Jet has closed its operations in 2016.
The firm’s UK 130,000 sq. Ft. facility, known as a Fixed Based Operation, in Biggin Hill was opened in April 2011 and 25,000sq Ft. facility opened a few months later in Doha. At the time, the company said it would allow “the most demanding VIP passengers to feel at home in a comfortable and luxurious environment”.
As well as providing maintenance and aircraft handling services, Rizon also offered clients at Biggin Hill semi-enclosed lounge areas, meeting facilities, a boardroom with video conferencing, private offices, a children’s corner, and even a prayer room.
In September last year, the hangar played host to BBC Radio 2 for a live broadcast of a music concert to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.
