London City Airport Expansion Plans and the Opportunities for East London Businesses

In 2016, London City Airport received permission to expand from the UK Government. This privately funded £344 million development programme will enable 6.5 million passengers to travel through the airport and 29,000 additional flights per year by 2025. The construction project is due to start this year, creating jobs and new opportunities for East London businesses.

The airport’s expansion contributes to the long term economic growth of East London and creates new business opportunities for East London businesses. The construction project is due to commence in 2017 and will generate up to 2,100 jobs, with 500 jobs in the construction phase alone and 1,600 jobs once the transformation is complete. The upcoming development phase also creates opportunities for construction and procurement contracts for East London businesses.

Rachel Ness, London City Airport’s Director of Planning and Strategy will explain more about the development and the opportunities for local businesses during the construction phase, including how to find tendering opportunities. ELBP will be onhand to explain how they we can support your businesses during any future tendering process.
