London City Airport reopens for commercial flights


After three months of being closed London City Airport has reopened on Sunday for commercial flights.

There are a series of safety and hygiene measures in place with enhanced cleaning and limited access to the terminal and face coverings are mandatory.

Robert Sinclair, chief executive of the airport, said passengers have “a desire to not only enjoy a holiday soon after nearly three months of lockdown, but to get back to business travel as well.”

A Department for Transport spokesman said, “It is hugely encouraging to see new flight routes connecting Dundee and Teesside to the heart of the UK’s financial sector.”
