London City Airport today published its new master plan which sets out the long-term vision for how it can grow in a sustainable and responsible way, supporting London’s recovery from COVID-19.
The publication of the master plan follows a 16-week consultation carried out in summer 2019. All comments received from local residents, stakeholders and passengers during the consultation period were taken into account in finalising the master plan.
Originally scheduled to be published in March this year, the decision was made to delay the publication and focus on supporting passengers, staff and local communities during the COVID-19 crisis and national lockdown.
The master plan is a non-statutory document that replaces the airport’s previous 2006 master plan. It outlines how the capital’s most central airport can:
• Provide capacity for up to 11 million passengers and 151,000 aircraft movements per year, by making best use of our existing runway in line
