Getting to the Airport

Conveniently located in the heart of the city, we’re easy to get to by rail or road.

As the only airport in London, we are ideally located for those travelling to and from London and Greater London. With great public transport links and road connections on our doorstep, central London is no more than 30 minutes away.

If you’re planning on using public transport, a Visitor Oyster card is a great idea. Your Oyster card works on both trains and buses, so it's worth remembering to top it up! On the trains, you just tap the card when you embark on your journey and tap again at the end to pay.

If you are arriving by road, we have directions for getting here and further information on airport car parks as well.

Bank station, reduced access from the 30th September.

As part of essential upgrade work it may take longer to interchange at Bank station so please allow extra time for your journey. Please check TfL website for updates.

Docklands Light Railway (DLR)

The DLR is an overground system connecting East London to the London Underground network. The London City Airport DLR station makes transport to and from the airport fast and convenient with trains departing every eight to 15 minutes, and with journey times of less than seven minutes to Canning Town or Woolwich Arsenal, and 17 minutes to Stratford International.

London City Airport is located in Zone 3. Oyster cards and tickets can be purchased at the DLR counter adjacent to the Terminal building.
