London City Airport has been named the best airport of its size in Europe for the second time at an industry awards ceremony

The 9th annual ACI Europe Best Airport Awards took place in Istanbul recently where the airport was announced as the winner of the 1-5 million passenger category for the second year running.

The judges awarded the prize to the airport for its streamlined passenger experience which is at the heart of its corporate strategy.

Declan Collier, Chief Executive of London City Airport said: “It is an honour to win this award and for the second consecutive year, demonstrating how hard the LCY team works to deliver consistently high standards and implement new initiatives.”

ACI Europe counts over 450 airports in 46 countries among its membership and LCY faced stiff competition in its category. The judging panel highlighted the rapid and pleasant transit through the airport as a key factor in selecting it as the winner.
