London City update

A national representative survey commissioned by London City Airport following the Prime Minister’s 22 February lockdown roadmap points to optimism amongst UK travellers.

72% of frequent flyers want to return to travel when restrictions are lifted.

With current limited services to Belfast and Frankfurt by British Airways, Vilnius for LOT Polish Airlines and Luxembourg by Luxair, London City Airport plans a full summer programme.

Services to Amsterdam with KLM, Dusseldorf with CityFlyer (BACF) and Dundee with Loganair are expected to commence in April, with SWISS returning to the airport in May.

BACF, the wholly-owned British Airways franchise, will offer flights from late spring to Amsterdam, Berlin, Belfast, Bergerac, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Edinburgh, Faro, Florence, Frankfurt, Geneva, Glasgow, Ibiza, Mahon, Malaga, Mykonos, Nice, Palma, Quimper, Rotterdam, Santorini, San Sebastian, Skiathos, Split and Zurich. All of course subject to local restrictions.

No news from Lufthansa on Frankfurt and Munich, or Air Antwerp to its home airport, nor Alitalia for Milan.

John Sadat, London

It will be fascinating to see how long it takes for LCY to build up traffic. I for one are not bothered as long as the routes are working. Less of a crush at the airport. And as a Paddington area resident what happens in the future. Do I still struggle through Bank to get there, or take the Elizabeth Line and what seems to be a long walk at Canary Wharf/Poplar? Oh for a Silvertown/London City station, another piece of Johnson arrogance.
