About the airport
As the only airport actually in London, London City Airport is less than a mile from the world-class events venue ExCeL London; three miles from Canary Wharf and six miles from the City of London.
Passengers travelling to and from the Airport enjoy fast transfers on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) with a journey time of 22 minutes to Bank, 14 minutes to Poplar (connecting to Canary Wharf) and 17 minutes to Stratford International (for the Olympic Village).
The Airport’s location, on the doorstep of London’s financial district, is considered vital to business and plays an integral part in the growth of the UK’s capital city. London City Airport receives considerable support from the business community who recognise the convenient location and ease of use with faster check-in times than any other London airport.
