London City Airport wins industry award

Thu, 11 Dec, 2008

It has been announced that London City Airport has received a prestigious award in the aviation industry.

The hub has been given the accolade of Best UK Business Airport by Buying Business Travel magazine readers, at a ceremony which is regarded as particularly important in the travel sector.

Richard Gooding OBE, chief executive of the airport, said he was thrilled with the prize and that it is the second time London City Airport has been given it.

"We have continued to successfully serve the business community for 21 years and it is an honour to be recognised as the leading airport for business travel in the country," he concluded.

In October, the airport was named as the winner of the European Regions Airline Association airport achievement award 2008/09 at a ceremony in Manchester.

This was given on account of its efficient planning and customer services, as well as a 24 per cent growth in passenger numbers in 2007, the judges said.
