Getting to the airport using public transport

London City Airport is easy to reach by public transport, with the DLR linking to London’s tube and rail network, and bus links too

We are proud of our accessibility at London City Airport; we have been described as the airport with the best public transport links in the world.

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.
