London City: introduction

 

London City Airport, located in the heart of East London, boasts a unique location and innovative design. Designed to meet the needs of business travelers, the airport is renowned for its proximity to central London and its modern facilities. Open from 4.45am to 10pm Monday to Friday, from 4.45am to 1pm on Saturday and from 11am to 10pm on Sunday, London City Airport is a hub of connectivity for domestic and international travelers.

London City Airport is limited to small aircraft due to its direction-finding slope, acoustic restrictions and the length of its runway. These constraints make it difficult for larger aircraft to use the airport. In addition, pilots must have specific training and certification to land at London City. Aircraft also need special options to land there. For these reasons, few private aircraft are allowed to land. It’s also London’s most expensive airport in terms of taxes and parking.

History of London City Airport

 

The history of London City Airport dates back to the 1980s. The British government had launched a project to redevelop the site of the former Royal Docks sugar factory. The aim was to create an airport offering fast, convenient air links to central London for business travellers and visitors.

In 1987, London City Airport opened its doors to the public. It became the first London airport to be located in the heart of the city. Initially, it was served by regional and domestic flights. It was a convenient alternative to airports further from the capital.

Over the years, London City Airport has undergone significant growth. It has added new destinations and expanded its facilities. Investments have also been made to modernize terminals, lengthen runways and improve equipment. As a result, more passengers and aircraft can now be accommodated. London City Airport’s glide path inclines at 5.8 degrees. This is steeper than the conventional 3-degree glide path.

Today, London City Airport is one of the UK’s busiest airports. It offers connections to European and international destinations. Its central location, ease of access and operational efficiency make it an essential part of London’s aviation industry. It contributes to the city’s economic and commercial dynamism.
