London City Airport (LCY)

It’s been a long time since I updated this page. I tried to travel to Copenhagen last week and couldn’t find a flight. On my return I looked up all destinations and found this page, which lists them all. It seems I could have travelled to Hamburg and then by train, I looked, maybe they were full since BA only do two flights a day and weekdays at that. 24 Oct 2014

To my knowledge thereare no private lounges

Getting there

Interestingly Google Maps suggests 53/177 to Woolwich Arsenal, and then DLR to City Airport. (March 2020).

Otherwise from the Lewisham branch of the DLR is a nuisance, often involving two changes and/or a big wait at Poplar or Canning town. Do you think there’s a bus? I have come to the conclusion that the best thing to do is

  1. Get the first train north
  2. Change at Canary Wharf and take the first train to Poplar
  3. Change at Poplar, and catch the first train to City Airport

We can now use the Dangleway,

  1. Walk to the 177 bustop
  2. Travel to North Greenwich by Bus
  3. Cross the River by Dangleway
  4. Walk to West Silvertown & DLR to City Airport

Two walks, so will depend on luggage but Taxi is still looking good.

The unique ground side bureau de change is AMEX, who don’t do HUFs, what do they do? I know they do Euro’s and am pretty certain they do CHFs. Is it based on the destination list?. Maybe next time I need to consider getting my money elsewhere. c 2010  but I should buy from the post office. New rule, don’t buy FX at the Airport or at St. Pancras!
