LCY is approximately 7 miles (11 km) east of the City of London and the business district of Canary Wharf, the twin centers of London’s financial center responsible for a majority of the airport’s traffic.

Passengers flying into the airport can enjoy beautiful views while flying over the Thames, including the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, before flying above Canary Wharf and Greenwich; pilots may enjoy the challenge landing presents as its glide path is set at 5.8 degrees, instead of the usual 3 degrees.

Clients can hire a private jet or turboprop with Air Charter Advisors in as little as 4-6 hours. All of the flights we arrange are operated by FAA part 135 and 121 certified air carriers that meet/exceed safety and operating standards.

ACA has taken the additional step of becoming a Premium Wyvern Broker Member, subscribing to their third party safety reports detailing operators, aircraft, and crews prior, giving clients peace of mind with every flight we arrange.

Only multi-engine, fixed-wing aircraft with special aircraft and aircrew certification to fly 5.5° approaches are allowed to conduct operations at (EGLC) London City.
