London City Airport (LCY) is the closest airport to the centre of London, just three miles from Canary Wharf, seven miles from the City and 10 miles from the West End, and linked to all via the Docklands Light Railway.
The airport offers a unique rapid transit proposition – a short check in (door to lounge) of around 20 minutes, and a shorter arrival (tarmac to train) of around 15 minutes. 10 airlines fly out of LCY, serving nearly 50 mainly European destinations. In 2015, LCY will welcome around 4.2 million passengers and 75,000 flights, in its 28th year of operation.
The airport has permission to increase its operation to 120,000 movements per annum – carrying 6 million passengers - which it intends to do by 2023.
