London City Airport (IATA: LCY, ICAO: EGLC) is an international airport in London, United Kingdom. It is located in the Royal Docks in the London Borough of Newham, approximately 11 km east of the City of London. The airport was first proposed in 1981 and construction began on the site shortly after permission was granted, with Charles, Prince of Wales laying the foundation stone of the terminal building, on 2 May 1986. The first aircraft landed on 31 May 1987, with the first commercial services operating from 26 October 1987. Queen Elizabeth II officially opened London City Airport in November of the same year. Today London City Airport has a single 1,500-metre (4,900 ft) long runway, and only multi-engine, fixed-wing aircraft with special aircraft and aircrew certification to fly 5.5° approaches are allowed to conduct operations at London City Airport. The largest aircraft which can be used at the airport is the Airbus A220-100. London City served over 4.5 million passengers in 2017. It is the fifth-busiest airport in passengers and aircraft movements serving the London area and was the 14th-busiest in the UK in 2017.
