London City Airport

London City Airport

London City Airport is the UK's leading business airport with ten airlines serving over 30 destinations across the UK and Europe and connections to the rest of the world through major European hubs.

The only airport actually in London, London City Airport is just two miles from the site of the 2012 Olympic Games; three miles from Canary Wharf and six miles from the City of London.

In 2008 British Airways announced its first business-class only transatlantic service to New York on the Airbus A318. The new service will launch in late 2009 and will be the first ever transatlantic scheduled flight from London City Airport. It is also the first time the new Airbus A318 will operate from the airport.

Since opening in 1987 London City Airport has developed a wealth of relationships with local communities and contributed significantly to the regeneration of the Docklands area. Through regular and voluntary interaction with community partners – residents, schools, colleges, hospitals, charities, local businesses, landowners, developers and other stakeholders, as well as local boroughs – the airport works towards accomplishing its goal - to reach out and support local projects and initiatives, whilst at the same time developing its business.

London City Airport works closely with its neighbours to maximise the positive impact of its operation for local communities, creating exciting career opportunities and developing transport links with surrounding areas.

At the same time the airport is determined to minimise any negative environmental impacts for people living and working in the area and continually implements and reviews schemes and processes to achieve this.
