Holidaymakers flying out for some summer sun are being given the opportunity to detach from modern life.
London City Airport is offering passengers a free light phone - a basic device with an intentional lack of features - in exchange for going 48 hours without their smartphone.
Liam McKay, director of corporate affairs at London City Airport, said: “The light phone will help London City Airport’s ever-increasing leisure travellers reduce digital distraction and reclaim those quality moments with family and friends on holiday.
“After all, a summer break is about detaching from everyday life and work.
“This is an opportunity for some of our passengers, including those who typically use the airport for business travel, to try a digital detox.”
The light phone will be available to passengers flying out between Monday, August 13 and Monday, August 27.
