At press time, London City Airport was expecting to have received a total of 7,000 business aviation movements last year–a level of traffic it had not been projected to reach until 2007. Business aircraft, which are handled through the Jet Centre FBO, now account for 10 percent of all traffic at London City.

The Jet Centre, which the airport opened in 2002, is being expanded to meet rising demand. Privately owned London City, which now expects the number of business aviation movements to double to 14,000 in 2007, is preparing to add more ramp space at the west end of the runway and also intends to build a hangar for business aircraft. The airport owns and operates the FBO itself.

Meanwhile, London City has also just launched its own dedicated executive chauffeur service. The operation, which is run for the airport by Quay Cars, has a fleet of 42 vehicles.
