London City Airport branded hot air balloon

London City Airport to host Lord Mayor's Hot Air Balloon Regatta

01/05/2017

London City Airport will accommodate the first mass cross-London flight to launch from a major airport, when it plays host to the annual Lord Mayor’s Hot Air Balloon Regatta® in June this year.

The official ballooning event of The City of London, which is being staged at the airport as part of its 30th birthday celebrations, will see more than 50 hot air balloons taking to the skies - the highest number recorded departing from a UK international airport. During the 15-minute launch period, London City Airport is likely to be one of the busiest international airports in the world, based on the number of ‘movements’.

An international array of hot air balloon pilots from the UK, France, Spain, Belgium and the USA are set to attend. London City Airport has also commissioned its own hot air balloon to join the extravaganza, affording Londoners spectacular views of the colourful display.
