Airport Profile

  • The Future of London City Airport

    London City Airport has submitted an application to the London Borough of Newham to make changes to its existing planning permission for the City Airport Development Programme (CADP).

    The application follows an extensive 10-week local consultation carried out by the airport last summer. The feedback raised some important issues to local residents which has helped inform some adjustments to the proposals.

    The application seeks to:

    • Increase the current planning cap on the number of passengers from 6.5 million to 9 million passengers per annum by 2031;

    • Extend operating hours on Saturday from the current closing time of 12.30pm to 6.30 pm, with an additional hour in Summer for arriving flights only, up to a maximum of 12; and

    • Allow three additional flights in the first half hour of operations on Mondays to Saturdays (6.30am-6.59am) with a new limit of 9 flights instead of the current limit of 6 flights.
