CityJet finally "connects" at LCY

Travellers to and from Ireland have now at last a proper fast connecting facility at London City Airport a service expected to attract passengers from alternative gateways. 

Following an initiative by CityJet, passengers on a through ticket from any of the 15 possible European connections on the airline at London City can check-in at the departure airport, and also their luggage, in the knowledge that they will be met by a representative of the carrier at a new designated stand just before immigration at City Airport.  They will then be personally escorted through a new ‘fast track’ arrangement and straight into the departures lounge and if necessary, the gate.

Both airline and airport are claiming that this is now the fastest connecting procedure of any major airport in Europe (a claim hard to dispute – Editor) with 30-minute connecting times easily possible. www.londoncityairport.com www.cityjet.com
