London City Airport Ads Nine Extra Routes for Summer

London City Airport Gears Up for Summer with Nine Extra Routes

Over the next three weeks, London City Airport will add nine extra routes as it prepares for the summer.

A link to Thessaloniki, Greece, will be added, as well as direct flights to Barcelona and Guernsey.

From mid-June, connections to Mahon, Santorini, Split, Quimper, Skiathos, and Jersey will be restored.

In May, the airport recorded little cancellations, with carriers operating 98 percent of their scheduled flights.

This came as 190,000 passengers were processed, which was 65 percent higher than the same month in the pre-pandemic year.

Following two years with passenger numbers below one million, the airport now hopes to complete the year with approximately three million people.

The most popular route is still Amsterdam, followed by Florence, Ibiza, Nice, and Malaga.

Edinburgh, Luxembourg, and Zurich, as well as Amsterdam, reported a surge in incoming business over the Jubilee bank holiday weekend.

“We are not only thrilled to see the sustained strength of the rebound in passenger volumes, but also by the manner our operation has performed throughout this period,” stated CEO Robert Sinclair.

“Despite a significant increase in flights and passengers, we have continued to deliver our market-leading passenger proposition of speed, convenience, and on-time performance – something I’m sure our customers have appreciated.”
We are fully resourced and dedicated to delivering the greatest experience for all of our passengers over what promises to be a truly memorable summer, with flights to 36 domestic and European locations.”
