Thick fog caused disruption at London City Airport

first_imgThick fog caused disruption at London City Airport for a second day.The airport closed at 06:30 GMT on Monday February 11th to flights to and from the airport due to poor visibility, although operators were able to get planes moving again later in the day. A spokesperson for the airport told The Times: “Because of our short runway, take-offs and landings are steep, which means the margin for error is limited.” However, the thick fog descended again on Tuesday and airport bosses urged passengers to check with their airlines before travelling to the airport.Meanwhile, the airport announced earlier this month that it would be running two additional business flights to New York when British Airways launches new services to the US city. Commenting on the development, City Airport chief executive Richard Gooding OBE, said: “This is a fantastic development for the airport and we welcome British Airways’ continued commitment to their growth at London City Airport.”ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedBA adds new London City servicesBA adds new London City servicesBaboo to launch flights to Geneva from London CityBaboo will introduce twice daily flights to Geneva from London City AirportBA launches new winter docklands routesBritish Airways (BA) will be launching two new routes out of London City Airport in December.last_img read more
