He is set to remain in the post until a successor is found, assisting an international recruitment firm in the search for his replacement.

Mr Collier, who was appointed in March 2012, said: “It has been a privilege and a pleasure to have been part of the airport’s success story for more than five years.

“London City Airport is a great business and well placed to take advantage of future growth and new aircraft technologies as we embark on our City Airport development programme.

“We have a dedicated and talented team working at London City Airport and I’m very proud of the work we’ve done to build a successful and sustainable business focused on our customers and community.

“However, as we embark on the next phase of the airport’s development I feel it is the right time to transition to new leadership and I look forward to assisting the chairman to secure my successor and continuing to work with the leadership team until a new CEO starts.”

Chairman Sir Terry Morgan added: “On behalf of the board I want to pay tribute to the tremendous contribution that Declan has made to London City Airport.

“Declan has been Chief Executive of London City Airport since March 2012 - a time that has seen significant growth at the airport, the successful sale of the business to a consortium of international investors and the securing of planning permission for a £350m development of the airport infrastructure.”

“Under Declan’s leadership, London City Airport has developed strong and wide ranging relationships across the aviation sector, with all levels of government- nationally, in London, and locally- and with our local communities.

“The airport has delivered significant growth in passenger numbers and earnings which in turn has stimulated economic activity across the local and London economy.”
