London City Airport has returned to expansion plans which were put on ice in 2020 due to the impact of Covid-19.

The airport has launched a 10-week public consultation on plans to increase annual passenger numbers from 6.5M to 9M.

To handle the additional passenger numbers, London City Airport has confirmed that it will return to previous plans to expand the airport’s terminal.

The airport’s consultation document adds: “The current terminal has permission for expansion as part of the CADP development.

“This development, coupled with enhanced passenger processing technologies will allow more passengers to be handled at a higher standard of service than achieved today. This includes continuous improvement of services for passengers with additional service needs, including engagement with representative groups and investment in facilities.”
