Mr Collier joins the Silvertown airport at a LCY at a time of growth. The airport has seen a seven per cent increase in passengers in 2011 from the previous year.
It has also seen the addition of four new routes, bringing the total it serves to 42.

He said: “Despite the challenging economic environment, the way forward for London City Airport is clear – we will grow passenger numbers and movements, while continuing to deliver against our passenger proposition of 20 minutes from door to gate. We are planning for, and investing in the future, and will continue to be the first choice for business-class passengers flying to European business destinations – while catering for travellers to an increasing range of European leisure destinations.”
