- reveal to the public
To celebrate its 30th anniversary, London City Airport has revealed to the public the plan of extension worth 300 million dollars. The privately-funded investment includes:
plans for seven new aircraft stands
parallel taxiways to maximise runway capacity
a world-class terminal extension to accommodate increasing passengers
The airport is also constructing the UK’s first digital air traffic control tower, operational in 2020.
The improvements will enable two million more passengers per year to use the airport by 2025 and add 30,000 additional flights per year, creating over 2,000 jobs and generating an additional £750m per year for the UK economy.
