Jet Aviation

1st Containers were contracted by the leading international company Jet Aviation. With their UK base at Biggin Hill Airport, they required a very specific container conversion to be installed at London Stansted Airport. With our in-house expertise, we were able to deliver the perfect solution in record time while keeping costs to a minimum.

Jet Aviation required a soundproofed container conversion with a generator to be positioned at London Stansted Airport, to be used alongside their small jets. The 1st Containers technical team got to work on the project straightaway and quickly installed all relevant power supplies and carried out the necessary health and safety checks.

Once the conversion was complete, 1st Containers were able to transport and off-load the container. At its destination, our technicians were on hand to setup the container for operation, and provide full instructions to the Jet Aviation team.
