London City Airport announced last night that it was to close immediately. There will be no flights until at least the end of April.
British Airways had planned a two week hiatus from today. The airport clearly felt that there was not enough traffic remaining and that the two week British Airways suspension would have been extended. All private jet flights have also been cancelled.
The airport said that:
“we have offered the use of London’s most central airport to the Government in case it can be used to support the emergency services, military or other government agencies.”
