Are you looking for an airport filming location?

Then think London City Airport, the only airport that is actually located in London.

With our unique opening hours we are able to make the whole airport available for your project as we normally become non-operational for 24 hours every Saturday from 13:00 onwards, and the fact that we normally close at 22:00 (Sunday-Friday) makes London City Airport the best place to do airport filming projects.

We are now accepting commercial and non-commercial filming requests including television production companies, filmmakers, promotional material, corporate training videos and so on.

Please complete the Filming Request Form below and email a copy to Tom Murphy, Commercial Property and New Business Manager at or call Tom on +44(0)7834 525 211.
