London City releases images of new terminal

24.12.2018

The new 51,000sqm terminal will feature additional shops, restaurants and bars that are «synonymous with the capital» and showcase «the best of the city» to its business and leisure passengers, according to the airport.

New concept images by London-based The Design Solution portray plans for the airport’s new check-in and security areas, departures lounge, baggage claim, dedicated arrivals area and gate lounges.

London City says the terminal will offer passengers «more space, better facilities, smart airport experiences and choice».

The overhaul forms part of a wider £500 million development programme that began in 2017 and includes eight new aircraft stands and a parallel taxiway next to the runway. Construction is already underway, with terminal facilities being built to the east and west of the existing building. 

The project is due for completion in 2022 and will allow London city to accommodate an additional 2 million passengers a year and 30,000 extra flights. The airport expects to see 5 million people travel through its halls in 2019.

In addition, the airport is due to begin testing a new digital air traffic control tower, which is set to become fully operational in 2020.
