London City Airways


London City Airways

London City Airways is a former British airline which was founded in 1986 by British Midland to operate services from London City Airport. The company was originally known as Eurocity Express.

History

The company was incorporated in 1986 as Eurocity Express. Operations began in the summer of 1987 from its base at London City Airport to Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris using two de Havilland Canada Dash 7. Together with Brymon Airways, with whom it competed directly on the Paris route, the airline was responsible for launching operations from the newly constructed airport. Further routes to Jersey and Manchester were added later.

In 1988, the airline was renamed as London City Airways so as to identify more closely with its base. Orders were placed for three de Havilland Canada Dash 7, the final airframes of this type that were produced. Although these increased the fleet to five aircraft, one was soon sold.

The airline was closed in 1990 following sustained financial losses.

Fleet

London City Airways operated only one aircraft type:

5 de Havilland Canada Dash 7
