London Airport Investment Programme

London City airport has announced a £15m improvement programme. This year the airport celebrated its millionth flight, welcomed its 36 millionth passenger and hosted an anniversary visit from the Queen.

Declan Collier, chief executive, said: "With the investment we've announced today and further infrastructure work over the next three years, we can reach our permitted capacity, maintain our high standards and absorb some European air traffic from other airports in the South East that are beginning to feel the strain."

The £15m improvement work will begin early next year. For more on this story visit London City Airport marks 25 years with £15m improvements
