Londoners avoid Glastonbury traffic by travelling to festival by helicopter

A growing number of Londoners are turning to private helicopter as their transport of choice to reach the Glastonbury festival in order to beat the legendary traffic jams.

In recent years, “glamping” has become increasingly popular at Glastonbury and other outdoor music festivals as an alternative to pitching tents, cooking on portable stoves, and queuing for hygiene facilities. Some glamping sites now charge in excess of £10,000 for less than a week’s stay near Glastonbury and the affluent festival-goers who use these services are likely to be the same ones opting for a faster mode of transport from London.

Andy Christie, Group Private Jets Director at Air Charter Service private jet company said: “We are seeing a growing number of customers that want to take the experience to a new level by flying in and skipping the hours that would have been spent in traffic jams. It’s the ultimate way to start the weekend, and to arrive stress-free and ready for the festival experience. In the wake of the recent terror attacks in Manchester and London, the heightened security checks at the festival are expected to lead to traffic jams of up to 12 hours long, whereas a helicopter flight from London takes 45 minutes.”
