What we like about London City Airport

The airport’s unique service proposition focuses on location, convenience, speed, customer service and targets high-yielding, time-sensitive passengers.

Wren House approach to working with the company

Wren House continues to support LCY’s growth ambitions as it successfully rebounds from tough market conditions during the pandemic and looks towards larger long-term strategic growth projects. A capital programme of full airport development is underway with additional stands, a parallel taxiway and updated immigration and baggage facilities already completed. LCY’s expansion plans are aligned with supporting London’s recovery and accommodating more efficient next generation aircraft to reduce carbon emissions.

Market trends and drivers underpinning the company’s success

LCY’s growth trajectory is underpinned by the growing London population and stretched capacity in the London aviation market. Over the past two decades, LCY has significantly outperformed the London market in terms of capacity growth to accommodate increasing demand.

Transition to a lower carbon economy is also at the core of LCY’s operations, with it having the target to become the first Net Zero airport in London by 2030.
