London City Airport has taken measures to reassure passengers when services resume at the end of June.

Measures have been put in place to welcome domestic services at the end of the month, followed by international flights in early July, after operations at the airport were suspended on March 25.

Temperature checking technology has been installed in departures and arrivals, and staff have been provided with face masks and visors.

The airport will be rigorously cleaned, including the use of anti-bacterial surface treatment to kill all germs upon contact.

Passengers will be asked to observe social distancing rules where possible and a CrowdVision solution will be used to detect areas with a high concentration of passengers in order to direct them to quieter areas.

Robert Sinclair, CEO of London City Airport, said, “It is our hope that by outlining the steps we are taking to make the airport safe, and by incorporating the views of our regular travelers into our plans, we will give people the confidence to fly from our airport to destinations across the UK and Europe.”

While the airport has been closed, major development has been underway on aircraft stands, the parallel taxiway and new immigration and baggage facilities.
