Travelling to or from the airport
Given the disruption caused by coronavirus, we recommend all passengers check the status and schedule for their preferred mode of transport before they set off.
Transport for London’s Journey Planner is a useful resource.
- When travelling to the airport, you can help reduce the risk of transmission and travel safely by:
- Avoiding the busiest times and routes
- Keeping distance from other people, 2 meters apart where possible
- Washing or sanitising their hands regularly
- Using PPE, including a face covering and gloves
If you arrive from overseas and plan to use public transport, pick up a Visitor Oyster card, which you can buy online or in stations across London, just remember to top it up! If you prefer, you can use contactless and Apple Pay at most stations around London.
Arriving by road?
If you're driving to the airport, see below for details on how to get here and where to park To help passengers have a safe and convenient journey, we have temporarily reduced car parking charges.
London City Airport is within the Ultra Low Emissions Zone so you may need to pay the ULEZ charge.
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.
