• A short and efficient check-in time of 20 minutes or less - from the front door to the departure lounge
  • A speedy arrival time of around 15 minutes – from tarmac to train or taxi
  • Best London airport for flight punctuality (CAA - October 2017)

The airport is located in London's Royal Docks, East London, and is connected to London's transport network via the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) in Zone 3 and served by frequent and direct trains. It takes 22 minutes to reach Bank tube station and 25 to Westminster tube station.

Work has now begun on the £500 million City Airport Development Programme due for completion in 2022. It will increase the existing terminal by 40,000m², around four times the size of existing facility, creating a truly 21st century airport with a much greater choice of shops, restaurants and experiences. The expansion will accommodate an additional 2 million passengers and 30,000 flights per year, whilst continuing to provide a speedy customer experience.

London City Airport’s newest airline – LOT Polish Airlines – touched down at London City Airport in January, linking London to the vibrant Cites of Warsaw, Budapest and Vilnius. Flights operate up to twice daily on the comfortable Embraer 190 aircraft.

British Airways now has its largest-ever fleet of aircraft operating in and out of London City, adding new BA routes to Munich, Germany (3 times a day) and Split, Croatia in June (3 times a week).

New airlines at London City Airport mean that the option of starting a long-haul trip from London City has never been easier. KLM, TAP Air Portugal, LOT Polish Airlines, Lufthansa and SWISS offer a vast network of international connections.

The Aer-Lingus connection via Dublin offers 17 North Atlantic destinations including the pre-clearance service in Dublin Airport allowing passengers to arrive as a domestic passenger in the United States.
