The award, was presented to the airport at the 11th annual ACI Europe awards in Prague, and recognised the airport’s bid to reduce passenger-waiting times, its ability to develop long-term strategic relationships with airline partners, and its commitment to environmental awareness.
London City Airport Chief Executive Declan Collier said: “We are delighted to have received this award for a fourth consecutive year. It is a fantastic achievement that recognises the enormous efforts that everyone at LCY has put into maintaining and delivering our customer propositions of speed, location, and customer experience.
“We have come a long way in the four years that we have been ACI’s Best Airport. Last month we enjoyed our busiest ever day welcoming 17,474 passengers and we continue to go from strength to strength.
“We are especially pleased to see our environmental efforts recognised. We have worked extremely hard over the last year to improve our environmental impact, reducing passenger carbon emissions by 6% in 2014, and are one of only five airports in the UK to have achieved Level Two ACI Carbon Accreditation status.”
