London City Airport Unveils £400m Redevelopment Plans


City Airport has unveiled illustrations for a £400 million redevelopment plan, to mark its 30th anniversary. 

The privately-funded project includes plans for seven new aircraft stands, a parallel taxiway to maximise runway capacity, and a terminal extension to accommodate more passengers.

The improvements will allow two million more passengers per year to use the airport by 2025 and add 30,000 additional flights annually.

The airport is also building the UK’s first digital air traffic control tower, which will become operational in 2019.

Declan Collier, chief executive, London City Airport, said: “Over the past 30 years, London City Airport has become an intrinsic part of London’s transport system; growing responsibly to a record-breaking 4.6 million annual passengers in 2016, creating local employment, and connecting business and leisure travellers with the UK, Europe and beyond.

“As we celebrate this anniversary, we look to a bright future ahead and the world-class transformation which is soon to commence.”
