London City Airport recorded its busiest month in its 26 year history in May 2013 peaking at 15,697 passengers on Friday 23rd. The Airport saw an increase of almost 20 per cent compared to May 2012 with 315,514.
These record-breaking numbers, combined with consistently higher load factors, demonstrate real success in the development of the route network at LCY. We have launched several new routes this year including Nuremberg, Dresden, Paderborn, Kristiansand and Rome. These additions to our service have achieved a significant increase in passenger numbers compared to other airports in the South East.
