London City Airport records 4.5 million passengers in 2016

London City Airport has released its passenger numbers for 2016, in which it achieved a record number of 4.5 million. The announcement comes as the airport looks to initiate its £344m (US$418m) redevelopment plans.

The record passenger numbers are said to be the largest in the airport’s 30-year history, representing 5% year-on-year growth. The busiest month was July, when 421,518 travelers departed or arrived at the facility. There are 10 commercial airlines serving London City Airport, flying to 50 domestic US and European destinations, with six new routes added during 2016.

Declan Collier, London City Airport CEO, said, “More people are travelling and making the right choice by opting for London City Airport. Our offer of a speedy and efficient passenger experience, just six miles from the City of London, means less time in transit and more time for the purpose of your trip.

“With 52% of all passengers travelling for business, the 5% year-on-year growth demonstrates that the appetite for business travel to and from London remains strong despite the unpredictable political climate, as we prepare to expand the airport in 2017 to meet increasing demand.”
