28 Captivating Photos Show London City Airport’s Humble Beginnings


This year the London City Airport celebrated its 30th anniversary. The Queen opened the LCA in 1987, the first London airport aiming to serve business travellers. Its routes were limited until the 1980s, but it now covers almost 50 destinations, serving those who come for work or leisure. To celebrate, the LCA has released these 28 magnificent pictures showing the changes its location went through throughout the years.

In its first month, the airport welcomed 8,235 travellers through its doors. The routes were limited to four destinations - a small network comparing to today.
