Go-ahead for £344m London City Airport expansion

The final planning green light has been granted for a £344m expansion of London City Airport.

The plans include an extended terminal, a new aircraft taxiway and upgraded public transport links, creating more than 2,000 jobs.

The expansion will raise the number of take-offs and landings at the airport from 70,000 a year to 111,000.

London City Airport estimates the scheme will create 1,600 jobs for staff, together with 500 construction jobs.

It's estimated this will almost double the number of passengers to six million a year by 2023.

London City Airport will also make a number of investments in transport links around the airport, including funding the cost of additional DLR rolling stock investing in a bus and taxi access scheme and improving walking and cycle routes to the airport.

Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond said: "London City Airport's ambitious growth plans will boost international connections, strengthening the City of London's links to destinations across the world, and send a clear signal that Britain is open for business."
