London City Airport
Book your private jet charter to or from London City Airport and you are only minutes away from the financial district of Canary Wharf and a convenient distance from both the City and the West End.
Right in the heart of the city
London City Airport is right in the heart of London’s Docklands, just a few short miles away from the new financial district of Canary Wharf. A short trip by chauffeur driven car will have you in the City inside of 20 minutes and the heart of the West End in less than 30.
The Jet Centre at London City Airport pride themselves on their speed of service. You can expect to be boarding your aircraft within 90 seconds of arriving at the airport. Similarly, from landing to disembarking and being on your way to your destination can take as little as a couple of minutes.
London City Airport and the Jetcentre offer superb facilities to both passengers and crew. These include a VIP lounge, meeting rooms, catering, ground transportation, crew facilities, aircraft parking and onsite customs and immigration.
All sizes of private and executive jet are welcomed by London City Airport right up to long range aircraft such as the latest Global Express 600 and Gulfstream G650.
London’s newest airport
City Airport first opened its doors to passengers in 1988, and handled 133,000 passengers in that first year. Within 10 years the airport had seen those passenger numbers rise to over half a million.
Transatlantic flights in a specially modified Airbus A318 were begun in 2009, operated by British Airways, and there is a continuing program of improvement at the airport that includes expansion of both facilities and caacity through to 2030.
An exciting approach and great view
London City Airport has one of the steepest glide paths in Europe. At 5.5 degrees it is nearly twice that of a conventional airport. This reduces the noise pollution for residents of the surrounding area and makes the approach to land at London City one to be experienced.
With this steeper approach, passengers will get a great view of the London skyline and 2012 Olympic park as they make the descent to land.
