Air travel for rich people
City type flights since 1987
City Airport is situated just ten miles from the West End of London and three miles from the business and financial centre of Canary Wharf.
It houses a single-runway airport, intended for use by STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) airliners, and principally serving the financial districts of London.
The airport was first proposed in 1981, construction began on the site (the former Royal Docks) in 1986, with the Prince of Wales laying the first stone of the terminal building. Queen Elizabeth II opened London City Airport in November 1987.
