London City on track for three million passengers this year

Thursday, Aug 04, 2022 0

London City says it remains on course to handle three million air travellers by the end of the year.

It served 640,000 passengers across June and July

August is also set to be busy, with over 300,000 passengers expected to travel as the airport closes in on one million passengers for the core summer travel months.

Airport teams fully staffed since the start of the getaway, with passengers getting from the DLR to their gate lounge inside 25 minutes on average.

London City is also urging passengers who are booked to travel in August to turn up no more than two hours before their flight and be prepared for security screening.

London City’s operation has been largely unaffected through August with airlines having some remaining capacity on key domestic and short haul European routes.

Amsterdam, Edinburgh and Zurich remained the busiest overall routes.

Ibiza has been the strongest leisure performer, followed by Florence, Palma, Nice and Malaga, it says.

“We have made a conscious effort with our airlines to attract more leisure routes and passengers this summer and the fact we could reach close to 1 million passengers for the period is testament to the resilience,” Chief Executive, Robert Sinclair, said.
