Getting to London City Airport

Being located in the heart of the city means we're very easy to reach.

And with multiple transport connections right on our doorstep, we're easy to find wherever you're coming from - or heading to.

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.

Reducing risk

  • 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.

ULEZ

London City Airport is within the Ultra Low Emissions Zone so you may need to pay the ULEZ charge.

Northern Line Closure Update

Between January 15th 2022 and May 15th 2022, there will be no Northern Line services between Moorgate and Kennington. If you’re travelling to London City, DLR services will continue to operate as normal but please allow extra time for your journey.
