If you’re travelling for business, you will most likely decide to enter London through the City Airport, which will take you right into the heart of the financial district.


The London City Suites By Montcalm are the perfect spot if you’re hoping to close an important deal or impress potential clients. Whatever your goal, it’s essential to start as you mean to go on and be in top form when you have important business decisions to make. To help get your trip off to a great start we’ve put together this London City Airport guide so you know exactly what to expect when you touch down in London.


As the smallest airport in London, LCA doesn’t feature as many extras in its terminal as the likes of Heathrow or Gatwick. However, it does include everything that you could need, whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure. The one and only terminal at LCA was opened in 1986 and has been updated and refurbished periodically in order to improve service and update the facilities ever since. The relatively small size of the terminal is handy if you’re in a rush. Everything is easy to find and quick to get to, which means you shouldn’t be late for a flight or an important meeting. It also means you’ll never struggle making your way to our 5 Star city hotels London to check in.



Although the airport may not have the room for dozens of award-winning lounges and luxurious accessories, LCA boasts a collection of facilities that will leave you wanting for nothing. There is a Bureaux de Change that operates within the airport, which is vital if you’re travelling from or to somewhere outside the UK. Multiple cash points can be found dotted through the terminal if you’d prefer to get your cash that way.

Business travellers in need of a meeting spot or quiet location have access to a range of dedicated services and facilities too. If you’re planning a last minute meeting book out one of the meeting rooms at the airport. If you need somewhere to finish off that last bit of work, head over to one of the many quiet areas and utilise the complimentary WIFI to get it done.

Other features include a post box, public telephones and even a shoe shining service, should you need to polish up your loafers before an important meeting. The London City Airport is fully wheelchair accessible so you can rest assured if you’re physically impaired or travelling with someone in a wheelchair.


If you find that you have a bit of spare time before or after your flight, take advantage of the selection of high-end shops and eateries at London City Airport. Enjoy a nice lunch at one of the luxury restaurants or grab a quick bite to eat at a fast food place or café. If you need to pick up some souvenirs before you head out of the city, there are all sorts of great shops where you can find everything from keyrings to high-end watches.
