NEWS London City Airport expansion given approval

In a step forward in easing aviation capacity in the south-east of England, plans to expand London City Airport have been given the go-ahead. The decision clears the way for a £200 million investment that will enable the airport to operate up to a permitted 111,000 annual flights, from the 70,000 currently flying. This new capacity will help ease the pressure on existing airport infrastructure in London and the UK while a decision is made on where new runway capacity will be delivered, and in the period before it becomes operational in the late 2020s.
