London City Airport showcases developing facilities in new video

London City Airport has released a new two-minute animation which offers a glimpse of the future for London’s most central airport.

The video follows a record-breaking day for the airport on Monday, with 20,300 passengers either arriving into, or departing from, London City Airport, indicating the popularity of the gateway.

The video ‘fly-through’, created by the visualisation team at design and engineering consultancy Atkins, conveys what the passenger experience will be like at London City Airport following a £500 million transformation, with major new facilities coming on stream in 2022.

The computer-generated animation depicts the airport journey of two pairs of passengers – a departing leisure couple and arriving business travellers – reflecting London City Airport’s evolving customer base.

During the animation, the passengers experience the brand-new check in area, security, departures lounge, baggage claim, dedicated arrivals area and gate lounges, with stunning views of the airport – inside and out.

Peter Adams, chief development officer for London City Airport, said: “We are building a new and impressive gateway for London in the heart of the Royal Docks, on the doorstep of the city and fast-changing East London boroughs.

“This new animation brings to life for the first-time what customers can expect - be they international visitors to London, leisure city breakers or business travellers.

“London City Airport will offer an amazing modern airport experience while retaining the speed and efficiency that we know our passengers love.”
