London City Airport awards Bechtel delivery partner role

Posted 10 July 2017 · Add Comment

Bechtel has been awarded a delivery partner contract to manage London City Airport's development plan.



The work includes expanding existing terminal facilities and creating new airfield infrastructure for a further 30,000 permitted flight movements.



The new facilities will allow for up to 6.5 million passengers by 2025 whilst maintaining reliable and consistent service for current passengers. 

As part of the five-year contract, Bechtel will work as part of an integrated team with London City Airport officials to deliver the multi-million-pound City Airport Development Programme, which includes plans to expand the existing terminal and build a new three-storey passenger pier, seven new aircraft stands as well as a new aircraft taxi lane. 



The upgrade will be delivered with consideration for surrounding businesses and residents, helping to future-proof the airport and to accommodate the next generation of aircraft that are quieter, have a longer range and greater fuel efficiency.



“Delivering London City’s expansion in an operational, urban airport surrounded by water, presents complex challenges that our team can meet,” said Paul Gibbs, Bechtel’s UK managing director. “We will partner with London City to enhance this important gateway with minimum disruption to passengers, airlines and the community.”

Declan Collier, chief executive of London City Airport, said: “The appointment of Bechtel signals the next important step towards the start of construction on this significant development. Their expertise and experience will ensure that the programme is delivered responsibly, professionally and skilfully, while the airport remains operational.

“Meanwhile, our millions of passengers will continue to recognize the speedy and efficient customer experience that differentiates the airport as one of the most convenient in the UK.”
