Location & access
Unlike other London airfields, London City Airport is located very close to the city centre, 6 km from Canary Wharf and 15 km from Buckingham Palace and Westminster Bridge. It will only take you 15 minutes to reach the City by car.
AEROAFFAIRES offers you to book the car with driver of your choice (Limousine, VIANO or Mercedes S-Class for example); it will be waiting for you as soon as you arrive in London City.
While its proximity to the City of London is a considerable advantage, London City Airport is still subject to strict flight restrictions due to noise pollution. Thus, planes can only take off and land from 6:30 am to 10:30 pm from Monday to Friday, from 6:30 am to 1 pm on Saturday and from 9 am to 10:30 pm on Sunday and public holidays.

History of London City Airport
The idea of creating a new airport emerged in 1981. A test flight was conducted to determine the feasibility of such a project and the foundation stone was laid by Prince Charles in 1986. Inaugurated in 1987, it quickly became the preferred airport for business travellers.
In 2005, major renovations were carried out to meet the growing passenger demand.
If you plan to stay in the Canary Wharf district, AEROAFFAIRES recommends the Marriott Canary Wharf hotel for its privileged location and top-of-the-range services.
