London Underground trade unions are planning a 24-hour strike on the Tube from 18:30 on Wednesday 5 August. If the strike goes ahead, Tube services will stop running from 18:30 on Wednesday 5 August until Friday 7 August. There will be no Tubes on Thursday 6 August. We are expecting normal service to resume on Friday. London Underground, Overground and TfL rail services are also set to run as per usual but are likely to be busier than normal. All passengers are advised to check their journey before they travel and allow additional time to get to their destination.

Airport Employs Staff from 28 Different Countries

18/02/2014

London City Airport (LCY) is an international business in more ways than one, reporting that its workforce is made up of 28 different nationalities.

More than 2,000 people work at LCY, with over 500 directly employed by the airport. They include nationals from all over Europe such as France, Spain, Italy and The Netherlands, as well as people from as far afield as Australia, Barbados, Brazil, South Africa and Uganda.

The most represented countries outside of the UK are Ireland, Portugal and Poland, followed by Nigeria, France, Germany, India and Lithuania.

London City Airport is committed to recruiting locally - 27 per cent of current employees are from the London Borough of Newham and 61 per cent live within five miles of the airport.

The airport’s proposed City Airport Development Plan – seven new stands, a parallel taxiway, a western extension to the existing terminal and a new arrivals building - will create 1,500 new full-time jobs by 2023 bringing the total workforce to in excess of 3,500.
