London City Airport to undergo development

London City Airport is to begin work on a multi-million pound overhaul of its terminal building in early 2010.

The project, to be managed by Atkins Design & Engineering, is scheduled to be complete in autumn of 2010 and will provide a significantly enlarged passenger search area plus additional space and comfort for passengers in the departure lounge.

Speaking of the project, Melanie Burnley, director of terminal services at London City Airport, said: "We are introducing additional security lanes to respond to the change in passenger behaviour. With a greater use of online check-in and less use of traditional check-in desks, more passengers are heading straight to security upon arrival at the airport.

"The reconfiguration of the terminal will enable the airport to maintain its successful status as the fastest airport in London."
