Responsible Growth

Local Businesses

London City Airport growth has supported the regeneration of East London contributing £750 million to the East London and UK economy. There are 550 companies working with or at the airport.

The airport’s expansion will create opportunities for even more local companies generating 500 jobs in the construction phase alone and 1,600 jobs once the transformation is complete. We remain committed to stimulating the East London economy by creating opportunities for local businesses in our supply chain and by sharing the airport’s best practices. We will work with local business organisations to deliver business skills workshops and an annual Meet the Buyer Event.
