Since opening in 1987 London City Airport has developed a wealth of relationships with local communities and contributed significantly to the regeneration of East London. Through regular engagement and communication with local stakeholders, the Airport provides an open channel of communication with those living and working nearby

Airport neighbours are encouraged to take an active interest in the operation. London City Airport recognises that local residents, public bodies, businesses and others are interested in the impact the Airport’s operation has on them and so communication and consultation with them is a priority.  

London City Airport has developed and implemented a comprehensive community relations programme that focuses primarily on: consultation and communication; local employment; education excellence; health and wellbeing for work; and charity. This structured programme of engagement has been delivered since 1995 by a dedicated Community Relations Team. 

Community engagement activities are delivered in a specific geographical area to ensure that the social and economic benefits of the Airport are shared with those affected by its operation.
