International Airport Review - Robert Sinclair
In the next instalment of International Airport Review’s exclusive series, the Chief Executive Officer of London City Airport, Robert Sinclair, explains how the long-term approach applied to every aspect of the airport’s strategy and decision making will be key in its recovery.
Like other airports in the UK and Europe, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on London City Airport (LCY)
Our City Airport Development programme was paused at the end of 2020 following the completion of key airfield infrastructure projects, such as the parallel taxiway and new aircraft stands. In addition, regrettably, a restructuring of the business in autumn 2020 resulted in approximately 40 per cent of staff leaving the airport. These decisions were very difficult, but, unfortunately, needed to be taken to safeguard our recovery.
