What is the London City Airport?
London City Airport is the UK’s leading business airport serving over 40 destinations across the UK, Europe and the USA, with connections to the rest of the world through the major European hubs.
Plans to expand London City Airport have been given the go-ahead clearing the way for a £200 million investment. The investment will enable the airport to operate up to a permitted 111,000 annual flights.
The plans include developing existing infrastructure to increase runway capacity, to allow more take-offs and landings at peak times and accommodate the next generation of quieter, more fuel efficient aircraft. These aircraft have longer ranges and will open up new markets not currently served from London City Airport.
