Passengers with luggage are advised to arrive at the airport no more than 2 hours before departure. Passengers arriving earlier than this will be unable to check in their bags. This is to avoid unnecessary congestion and to ensure baggage handling operates smoothly.
Maybe it’s the central location, the easy accessibility via public transport and fast check in which contributed to London City Airport being voted best UK Airport by Wanderlust readers. An independent poll of nearly 3,000 readers awarded London City Airport the prestigious title. London City Airport beat Norwich, Inverness, Newcastle and Bristol International Airport to the number one position. The awards ceremony took place at The Times Destination Travel Show, Earls Court and Charles Buchanan, Strategy Director for London City Airport was present to collect the award on behalf of the Airport.

The future looks bright for London City Airport. 2007 was a record year for the airport with passenger numbers reaching nearly three million.
