Latest new from London City Airport

Cutting edge ski goggles available exclusively at London City Airport

Gadget fans swapping the city for the slopes this winter will love the latest items to become available at London City Airport (LCY).

LCY has become the first airport in Europe to stock ZEAL Optics Z3 GPS and HD Camera Goggles.  The Z3 built-in GPS system tracks speed, altitude, jump stats, route and temperature on an integrated 16:9 widescreen display inside the lens. The Z3 GPS Goggle is offered with ZEAL’s Optimum Lens or its patented Polarized Automatic Lens, which changes with the light.  The ZEAL HD Camera Goggle captures 1080p HD quality video and can shoot up to 8 megapixel photos without having to take your gloves off.

The cutting edge designs make the skier or snowboarder feel as if they’re starring in their own computer game.  They are available to purchase in the Aelia Duty Free store in the LCY departure lounge.

Neil McLeod, Director of Non-Aviation Sales at London City Airport said:  “Our passengers expect the best.  That means everything from the premium flights we offer to the range of products for purchase in our retail outlets and the quality of the food and drink in our bars and restaurants. 

“People flying out of LCY can enjoy a glass of vintage wine, buy a top of the range designer watch and now pick up the very latest in cutting-edge technology ski gear on their way to the snow.”

With flights departing several times a day from LCY to Geneva, Bern, Chambery, Milan, Munich, Zurich and Glasgow, many of the suits that can usually be found in Departures at LCY have been replaced by ski jackets and body warmers and the goggles are expected to prove a big hit.

The ZEAL Optics Z3 GPS Goggles are priced from £370 duty free [including Switzerland] and £432 duty paid, depending on lens selection.  The ZEAL HD Camera Goggles are from £270 duty free and £318 duty paid.
