London City Airport 'best in UK'
Tue, 12 Feb, 2008
For the third year in a row, London City Airport has been voted best airport in the UK by Wanderlust readers.
Following an independent poll of nearly 3,000 readers, the airport beat competitors Newcastle Airport and Bristol International Airport to win the title.
Charles Buchanan, strategy director, collected the award and said he and his colleagues are "delighted" to have won.
"This is the third consecutive year which Wanderlust readers have voted London City Airport the best UK airport," he commented. "It means so much more when awards are as a result of passenger opinions."
The airport stated that its central location, fast check in service and easy access via public transport may have all contributed to its success.
Additional aircraft parking is currently underway and due to be completed in spring following a record year for passenger numbers in 2007.
The airport aims to expand its aircraft parking stands from 14 in 2006 to 19 by 2015 and 25 by 2030.
