Earlier than I expected, especially given the UK Government’s quarantine plans, London City Airport has announced that it will restart commercial operations ‘from the end of June’.
Closed since 25th March, the airport will initially open for domestic flights.
International flights are expected to resume ‘in early July’.
Both departing and arriving passengers will be subject to Temperature Checking Technology, although there is no mention of any requirement to wear face masks.
Robert Sinclair, CEO at London City Airport, said in a statement:
“When our doors re-open again shortly, our ambition is to provide the best airport experience in the UK to our passengers by ensuring we follow industry guidance to the letter and by maintaining our reputation as the quickest London airport to get to and through.
While there are many challenges ahead for the UK aviation industry, it is our hope that by outlining the steps we are taking to make the airport safe, and by incorporating the views of our regular travellers into our plans, we will give people the confidence to fly from our airport to destinations across the UK and Europe.”
