Posted 19 October 2017 · Add Comment

London City Airport was announced as the winner of the prestigious European Regions Airline Association (ERA) Airport of the Year award.



The ERA Airport of the Year award, this year sponsored by the Irish Aviation Authority, celebrates the achievements of ERA member airports.

The awards ceremony took place in Athens on Wednesday 18 October as part of the association’s annual General Assembly. The award is judged by an independent panel comprised of senior industry experts, including past CEOs of European airlines, highly-respected aviation journalists and academics.
 
Paula Bangle, General Manager Business Development, Membership and Communications at ERA, comments: “London City Airport, a powerhouse of a regional airport and the winner of this year’s ERA Airport of the Year award, is always pushing forward for the best passenger experience in a capacity-constrained space. The major investment in its new terminal extension, creating 500 jobs and another 1,600 more upon completion, is highly commendable. Huge congratulations to the whole team at London City Airport.”
 
Richard Hill, Chief Commercial Officer at London City Airport, said: “This is deserved recognition for London City Airport on the European stage in its 30th anniversary year and we thank the European Regions Airline Association (ERA) for this accolade. It follows record-breaking passenger growth and a winning formula which differentiates the airport not just in London but across Europe.
 
“The airport is on the cusp of an exciting next chapter, with a £400 million development programme and the UK’s first digital air traffic control tower, setting a new standard for the global aviation industry to follow. Meanwhile our quick check-in and arrivals process, convenient location, and easy public transport access, continues to make London City an attractive airport for both business and leisure passengers.”

Founded in 1980, ERA is a non-profit trade association representing 52 airlines and 146 companies involved in European air transport and is the only association representing the entire spectrum of companies involved in European aviation. The association promotes the interests of European airlines by lobbying the European Commission and other European regulatory bodies on policy matters, promoting the social and economic importance of air transport and its environmental commitments.
