London City Voted 7th in World’s Most Scenic Airports

London City Airport has been voted one of the world’s 10 most scenic airport landings in a poll conducted by private jet booking company PrivateFly.com. The Airport Approaches poll was conducted in December 2012 and results were generated by PrivateFly website users and from social media invitations across a range of global sites. A total of 1,711 votes were received, with 83 different airports receiving a nomination.

Matthew Hall, Chief Commercial Officer at London City Airport said: “Thank you to everyone who voted for LCY and helped us to make the top 10. As the only airport actually in London, we are unique in that aircraft descend right in front of Canary Wharf and on approach passengers are left in no doubt about how close they are to England’s capital city and its many iconic landmarks. It’s great to know that our passengers enjoy the view as much as we do.”

Adam Twidell, Chief Executive of PrivateFly.com, said: “The top 10 is an annual bucket list for air travel fans, giving a fascinating mix of global descents; from major city views such as London City and Los Angeles, to tiny remote airstrips such as Phinda in South Africa, where aircraft land in the middle of a game reserve.”
