London City Airport halts all flight operations until the end of April

London City Airport temporarily suspends commercial and private flights.

Following the Government’s latest instructions in response to the Coronavirus outbreak, London City Airport has made the decision to temporarily suspend all commercial and private flights from the airport.

The shutdown started in the evening of Wednesday 25 March and is expected to last until the end of April, although the end date will be kept under review.

The airport said in a statement  "At this point in this fast-moving and unprecedented situation, we think this is the responsible thing to do for the safety and wellbeing of our staff, passengers and everyone associated with the airport."

The airport will continue to follow official guidance and work with the authorities to understand the situation and how best to respond.  The airport also apologised to passengers, "We are sorry for the inconvenience that this will undoubtedly cause our passengers. Normally we are focused on making everyone’s journey in to and out of central London as quick and easy as possible. But we are sure you will agree this is a necessary step at this time for everyone’s safety and wellbeing."

If you were due to fly to or from London City Airport in the coming weeks, you should be contacted by your airline directly.
