London City airport will shut temporarily to allow for RAF fly-overs during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend.
Operations will be halted for 20 minutes on the morning of Thursday, June 2 as 70 aircraft fly over the capital.
A subsequent fly-over on June 5 will see the Docklands airport suspend operations between 16.57 and 17.07pm.
The Jubilee long weekend at the airport – which last week handled a post- pandemic record of 67,000 passengers – looks set to be busy, with domestic arrivals and international destinations, such as Amsterdam, Milan, Frankfurt and Zurich.
A special Jubilee logo has been introduced for a week and a promotion to save £70 on car parking for 70 passengers.
