London city AIRPORT PARKING – The thrill
And Convenience to take off and land in the town
Can you imagine the thrill and excitement of taking off and landing in the middle of a large town, high-rise buildings and London’s landmarks ornating the horizon and London Olympics stadiums and parks embellishing the Thames River’s shores? London offers a really exceptional service: an airport almost in the middle of the town. You can reach the airport in utmost convenience in a short ride – just as you would drive to Piccadilly Circus or to Hyde Park.
London City Airport started its operation in 1987, and has steadily increased its services and expanded its potential. Located on a former dock in Newham, it is six miles close to the city centre. In 2014, 3.6 million passengers flew through London City Airport, and an increase up to 8 million passengers is planned through 2030.
The airport is preferred by business travellers, who make up 65% of the passengers, for its location in the town, its fast and easy access and for its excellent and swift service. Although the airport only allows mid-range airplanes – due to the steep approach slope and relatively short runway, it offers flights to over 40 mostly Western European towns, with two weekly flights to New York. Private executive jets also increasingly offer executive private flights and fast connections to other London airports. However, London City Airport becomes more and more the choice of leisure travellers as well, many of them using the British Airways CityFlyer airlines based on this airport.
Not only does the London City Airport figure among the World’s ten airports with the most stunning approach sceneries – a fact that by itself makes it worth booking a flight from this airport to enjoy the astounding beauty of the aerial views. London City Airport ‘s commitment to excellence and friendly, efficient service won it many awards, among others ACI Europe’s Best Airport award for the three consecutive years from 2012 to 2014, and the 2015 award as “Responsible Business Champion”.
