London City Airport identifies five categories people fall into when packing for a holiday
Do you come home from holiday having worn less than half of what you packed? Do you get to the pool only to realise you’ve forgotten to pack your swimsuit? Or do you smugly sail past Baggage Reclaim, pitying all those who didn’t have your foresight to fit everything you need into a cabin-baggage-sized wheelie bag?
London City Airport has identified five profiles people fall into when packing for a trip:
“We see a lot of Pants & Polos with our business travellers, who travel regularly and have packing down to a fine art. However, weekend breakers’ and holidaymakers’ luggage comes in all shapes and sizes and we get a broad mix of WOTS, Kitchen Sinkers and My Case or Yours. The beauty of a Last Minute packer is that to the outside world they appear organised, it’s only when they’re sitting around the swimming pool in jeans and cowboy boots that they get found out.”
London City Airport (LCY) is the only London airport situated in London itself, just three miles from Canary Wharf, seven miles from the City and 10 miles from London’s West End and linked to all via the Docklands Light Railway. Catering for around 3.65 million passengers (61% travelling on business, and more than 60% inbound) and 75,000+ movements annually, in 2015 LCY celebrates 28 years of operation. LCY offers a unique rapid transit proposition – a short check in (door to lounge) of around 20 minutes, and a shorter arrival (tarmac to train) of around 15 minutes. Ten airlines fly out of LCY, serving 46 mainly European destinations. The airport has permission to increase its operation to 120,000 noise factored movements per annum – carrying 6 million passengers - which it intends to do by 2023.
