30 years of London City Airport

Business Travel News  has appointed specialist Manchester-based transport book expert Crécy Publishing Ltd as distributor for its forthcoming title London City Airport – 30 Years Serving the Capital, written by BTN’s editor-in-chief Malcolm Ginsberg.

With more than 700 titles in print, Crécy Publishing has a growing reputation as a premier aviation, railway and transport publisher. It recently announced the acquisition of the railway, transport and military history publishing interests of Ian Allan Publishing Ltd, including the ‘OPC’ railway imprint. Crécy books are available through a worldwide network of distributors and stockists including museums, specialist retailers and high street bookshops.

London City Airport – 30 Years Serving the Capital traces the history of what was once called Docklands and the birth of what we all like to call LCY. The airport is very much the hub of an area that stretches from Tower Bridge to the Queen Elizabeth Bridge, a huge expanse of enterprise and initiative including Canary Wharf, ExCel London and the Royal Docks.  

Ginsberg highlights the first test landing into Heron Quays in June 1982, the Queen’s official opening in November 1987 and the maiden non-stop flight to New York in April 2017. The major players in the enterprise over the years have their say. There are 184 pages with plenty of photographs.

The hardback book is officially published on 5 November and can be ordered via Crécy.  It will be available well before that date and will make for a good Christmas present. ISBN  978-1-900438-07-0
