London City Airport Handled Five Million Passengers

London City Airport has handled more than five million passengers in 2019.

London City Airport has handled more than five million passengers in 2019. The 5,100,025 number represents a year-on-year increase of 6.3% compared to 2018 figures.

This has apparently been driven by the launch of new routes as well as additional flights and larger aircraft operating out of the airport.

Commenting on the news was Richard Hill, the Airport’s Chief Commercial Officer, who talked about how successful 2019 was for the airport. “2019 was a very successful year for London City Airport, with increased demand from passengers and airlines, the launch of new routes and expansion of others, and continued high scores for passenger satisfaction,” Hill said.

“It demonstrates that the combination of speed, convenience, excellent customer service and connectivity to and from the heart of London continues to be a recipe for success.”

Hill also went on about how these passenger numbers may rise due to the investment currently going into the airport.

“That is why we are investing half-a-billion pounds in the transformative City Airport Development Programme to increase capacity and improve our facilities for passengers and airlines,” Hill explained.

“This will ensure we can play a greater role in supporting London as an international destination for business and leisure, while also creating more opportunities for people in East London.”

Looking into the year ahead, he also mentioned that new routes to San Sebastián and Dundee have already been announced, which will highlight further operational growth out of the airport.
