LONDON CITY AIRPORT could be the beneficiary of an ambitious experiment being unveiled on the Clyde today (Monday 8 February) by the Stagecoach Group. Being demonstrated is an “amfibus” which by making use of existing slipways could help to link the riverside communities. The Dutch-built £700,000 amphibian can carry 50 passengers and cruises at 8 knots. When London City Airport opened in 1987, due to poor transport links, the airport subsidised a river service from Embankment which was popular but impractical as passengers had to get off at a local wharf and then be transported by road to the airport. The “amfibus” would drive straight out of the Thames itself (not the dock) and quickly arrive at the airport door. Initial check-in facilities could also be provided. www.stagecoachgroup.com
