London City airport recorded it busiest ever February last month, with a 33 per cent increase in passenger numbers compared to the same period in 2014.
According to the airport’s monthly passenger traffic figures, the European cities of Edinburgh, Dublin and Amsterdam were its busiest routes with a combined total of 112,380 passengers over the month.
London City CEO Declan Collier said: “February has been a very good month for the airport, with improvements in the financial services and insurance industries, as well as the financial recovery.
“Our busiest ever February day came just two days after the FTSE 100 closed on a record high, seemingly a reflection of growing confidence across the UK economy.
“The figures underline the airport’s commitment to delivering on its customer pledges of speed, location and customer experience,” he said.
London City said its traffic was helped by the new British Airways route to Dublin launched last year as well as Flybe’s Edinburgh service.
London to Dublin was revealed as the world’s second busiest route last year and following British Airways and Flybe’s launch of flights from London City, alongside existing flights with Cityjet, it now offers the most daily flights to Dublin from any UK airport.
Collier added: “The numbers also highlight the importance of our expansion plans. We must develop our infrastructure in order to cope with increased demand and deliver the very best service possible to passengers travelling to and from London City Airport.”
