London City Airport is one of Europe’s leading airports for business travel. It is an important provider of air travel for the South East, supporting the growth of the city and the regeneration of East London.
As passenger numbers continue to grow, plans are in place to expand current operations to handle eight million passengers per year by 2030. To support this growth, the airport needed a new purpose-designed 3,000m2 headquarters to make way for the Docklands Light Railway extension. The original City Aviation House was positioned exactly in line with the route of the rail track and so had to be demolished.
