I dont play BFG, so I honestly have no idea what I am talking about.

But it seems Tyranids have a fleet in BFG. Would this not justify giving them some aircraft of some kind?

We could even use the BFG models...

Spacecraft you mean? I've used a list from this website that had one. Great fun!

Tyranids don't have any aircraft per se, the Harridans and (more recently) Harpies fill that niche. Their spacecraft are not atmosphere capable; they draw biomass up from the surface by linking to the capilllary towers.

There are descriptions of Gargoyle flocks attacking aircraft, but most of the effectiveness comes from being sucked into intakes and generally being in the way, a kind of intentional birdstrike approach.

The more general answer is that Tyranids don't have anything fast enough to qualify as an aircraft, so the Haridan is modelled as a skimmer.

Apparently, the speed does not stop them from having fast ships in their space fleet....?

Indeed, moving through the vacuum of space is very different to flying at super-sonic speed in a thick atmosphere.
