London City Airport Reopens for Passenger Flights as U.K. Eases
(Bloomberg) -- London City Airport reopened for passenger flights Sunday after a three-month shutdown due to Covid-19, according to a statement by the airport.
New safety features include temperature checks, signs and floor markings to help with social distancing and crowd-tracking technology so staff can monitor and direct passengers in large crowds to quieter areas. Passengers are also being asked to wear face masks.
British Airways has run a business-only flight to New York’s John. F. Kennedy International hub from London City Airport since 2009. Travel restrictions due to the pandemic are now preventing most international travel.
