London City Airport starts consultation on infrastructure to accommodate more flights

14:22 26 March 2013

London City Airport is starting a second round of public consultation on proposals allowing it to increase the number and size of aircrafts.

Plans have already been approved for up to 120,000 flights using the airport in the Royal Docks every year.

Permission is now being sought for seven additional aircraft parking stands, along with an extended terminal building and a new eastern passenger pier to be build to accommodate more flights and passengers.

The airport’s chief executive, Declan Collier, said: “The programme aims to prepare the airport for the future. Of central importance is that the investment will help safeguard the thousands of jobs at the airport, as well as our role as an international gateway to London and catalyst for the on-going regeneration of East London.”

There will be a chance to view the draft proposals at Royal Docks Learning and Activity Centre in North Woolwich on April 10 from 4-8pm, at Chrisp Street Ideas Store in Poplar on April 11 from 3-7pm, at Britannia Village Hall, West Silvertown, on April 12 from 2 to 6pm.
