London City Airport releases new welcome back video to travellers
London City Airport (LCY) in the UK today released a new video to welcome back and support passengers as they resume travelling through the airport this summer.
It has timed the release to coincide with what it calls building momentum at the airport at the start of the summer holiday season, with more international flights and destinations on offer from LCY now than for quite some time.
The new video also comes on the back of the airport’s busiest week of the year, with over 15,000 passengers travelling through London City, a 35% increase on the previous week.
As demand returns and travel restrictions ease, LCY will provide connections to 24 domestic and European destinations in August, with home-based carrier BA City Flyer offering flights to popular summer holiday destinations including the Greek Islands, Balearics, and the Côte d’Azur, direct from London’s most central airport.
LCY’s chief executive, Robert Sinclair, enthused: “After the year we’ve all had, passengers are keen for a well-deserved getaway this summer and we can’t wait to welcome them back.
“We understand travelling internationally has changed for the time being, but we’re taking steps to support our passengers. We have been working hard to maintain the fast, convenient, and friendly airport experience for which London City is renowned, and our testing centre and internationally-recognised health measures are enabling safe and speedy journeys for passengers as they resume travelling.”
Passengers will benefit from the airport’s convenient location, rapid transit, and world-class customer service, which has been aided by the upgrade of the airport’s E-Gates to provide a stress-free and fully digital experience at the UK border.
LCY notes that the health and safety of passengers and staff remains paramount, with the airport asking passengers to continue to wear face coverings and to respect others by maintaining a safe distance where possible.
In addition, the airport’s onsite COVID-19 testing facility, located next to the terminal and delivered in partnership with Collinson, allows passengers to book the full range of coronavirus tests for key international markets prior to departure or on arrival.
Passengers can also use the airport’s dedicated online travel portal to inform their and support their travel choices this summer, from booking flights to understanding the testing and entry requirements for all destinations served by the airport.
