Fire evacuation statement - 17 June 2014
A spokesperson for London City Airport said: “A late-running passenger trying to stop a flight to Frankfurt triggered the fire alarm. The alarm was triggered around 2.45pm and a full evacuation carried out. The source was immediately identified and staff and passengers were able to re-enter the building around 15 minutes later.
Once an aircraft has started its engines there’s little you can do to get onboard if you’re late, short of clinging to the undercarriage - which we obviously wouldn’t recommend. Lovely though Frankfurt is, the person who triggered the alarm will probably, with hindsight, wish they had taken it on the chin and re-booked as the matter was taken up by police.”
