Airport to appeal council decision


London City Airport’s expansion plans were unanimously rejected by Newham Council earlier this month, citing noise disturbance and environmental impact as major concerns.

The airport was looking to increase its annual passenger cap from 6.5m to 9m and to extend its cut-off time for flights on Saturdays from 1pm to 6.30pm all year round and 7.30pm during the summer months.

The airport has confirmed that it will appeal against the decision.
