Sustainable Transport is at the forefront of what makes the airport accessible to over 4 million passengers per year. With direct links to the Docklands Light Railway (DLR), the airport enjoys sector leading public transport take-up rates. Click here to read more.

Surface Access Strategy 2018-2025

The airport’s speed of passenger processing and its convenient location, with associated rapid public transport links, are highly valued by LCY’s passengers and enable us to offer an unrivalled door-to-door experience.

The rapid public transport links are evidenced by the airport’s high mode share of passengers using the DLR, Taxi or bus to get to and from the airport. The airport is one of a few important catalysts positively contributing to a rapidly changing east London cityscape with growing development transport pressures and challenges.

It is against this dynamic backdrop that LCY has produced its Airport Surface Access Strategy (ASAS). The ASAS defines the long term approach the airport will take to encouraging air passengers, airport staff and other airport users to travel sustainably. The ASAS has two key targets for the airport to achieve by 2025:

  • Over 75% of air passengers travelling by public and sustainable transport
  • Fewer than 40% of airport staff to travel by single occupancy private car

The Travel Plan was produced in 2019 and provides interim targets to 2022 and is being updated in 2022 to take it to 2025’
