Latest new from London City Airport

Estonian Air to start flights to London City Airport from March

From 1 March 2013, Estonian Air will be opening the gateway to Tallinn from London City Airport with three return flights a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Starting from 2 May 2013, Estonian Air will add Thursday flights serving route with four return flights a week. From 1 June 2013, the route will be served with six weekly flights every day except on Sundays. The flights will be operated with the new 112-seater Embraer 190.

“London has been an important destination of the Estonian Air’s network and we wanted to improve the current schedule with two weekly flights with more frequent one. The start is tied to the delivery of the new Embraer E190 jet. Flights to new London City Airport with more frequent schedule giving our customers greater choice when travelling between Tallinn and London,” said Tero Taskila, the CEO of Estonian Air. "I would like to stress that our new flight plan suits considerably better the business travellers by making the connection between the two capitals not only more frequent, but also shorter in duration."

Declan Collier, CEO of London City Airport said: “London City Airport is delighted to welcome Estonian-Air and we're very much looking forward to the commencement of the LCY-Tallinn service in 2013.

“Known as one of the most rapidly developing economies in the Baltic sea, Tallinn is establishing itself as a destination of choice for UK travellers - who will now be able to get there via the only London airport actually in London - quickly and easily. Tallinn will also provide passengers with easy connections to Moscow and St Petersburg.”

"I am delighted that agreement has been reached between London City airport and Estonian Air on a new route between Tallinn and London, starting in the spring.  A route into City Airport offers both business and leisure travellers excellent, fast connections into the City of London and the rest of London and the South East, as well as good and easy onward flight connections at City. The plan to upgrade by next summer to a direct service flying six daysa week will also be a big positive change which should attract many more business and leisure travellers, in both directions. This is great news for both the UK and Estonia," says Christopher Holtby, the British Ambassador.

"This is extremely welcome news for both British and Estonian businesses. A regular point to point service between Tallinn and London as the financial centre of Europe is critical to the continued growth of commercial links," says James Oates, the Chairman of the Board of the British-Estonian Chamber of Commerce.

Flights from Tallinn will departure at 7:30 and arrive at London City Airport at 8:20. Flight from London City Airport will departure at 8:50 and arrive at Tallinn Airport at 13:30,  all local times. 

London City Airport is ideally located for passengers who need to fly in and out of London quickly and efficiently.  London City Airport is the only airport situated in London itself. Financial and business centres Canary Wharf and the City are three and six miles respectably from London City. Both London’s well known tourism destinations West End and Westminster are situated only 10 miles from the airport. It means that the average journey time into central London is 20 to 30 minutes with public transportation. 

The airport is accessible via fast rail-connection which is well integrated into London's tube network. Single train ticket costs during weekdays 4.80 pounds (6 euros). Off-peak, future Saturday connection, price for the ticket is 2,90 pounds (3,60 euros). A sample train and tube ride with three connections to Piccadilly Circus tube station will take 34 minutes. Waterloo station, with such popular sights such as Westminster and Big Ben right across the Thames, takes two connections and 25 minutes.
