Friday 5, February 2010
London City Airport received the Gold Award for Top UK Airport, voted by Wanderlust magazine’s readers, for the fifth year running.
The award, presented by the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Lyn Hughes at the Destinations Travel Show in London on 4 February 2010, recognises the airport’s continued commitment to customer service and its convenient location only a short distance from the centre of London. London City Airport, along with Singapore Changi Airport, were shortlisted for the award from a total 556 nominated airports across the world.
Richard Gooding OBE, Chief Executive of London City Airport commented; “We are delighted to have won this prestigious award again and are pleased that Wanderlust readers continue to vote London City as the best UK airport.”
In a move to further improve passenger comfort, London City Airport has commenced a seven million pound reconfiguration of its terminal with a priority to add additional security lanes and expand the departure lounge.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
