Having checked with both the information desk in the airport, and emailing the airport, the answer is sadly no. Their response was: Thank you for your comments about drinking water fountains. Lack of suitable locations has been the main issue why we have not introduced the facilities, however, we have started a terminal development program and ...

London City Airport doesn't have a railway station. It is on the Docklands Light Railway in Zone 3, on the Woolwich Arsenal branch. Starting from Cambridge, you can buy a through ticket. You'll want either a single or a return, to London Zone 3. If you're coming back, you'll need to buy a return in Cambridge, as there are no National Rail ticket facilities ...

8 pm isn't really late. You could also go to Canterbury on the day of your arrival, since the last train to Canterbury leaves at 21:50 from City Airport London. You would arrive at 23:38 in Canterbury. In London itself, it really depends on where you want to go. But if you check the Transport for London homepage, you will see that you can get form the City ...

There's only one security queue at LCY, so flying business or having status doesn't make any difference. There are up to 5 scanning stations, and they do tend to open all of them at busy times. Most people travelling through City Airport are regular travellers, so know how to prepare for security, and consequently things tend to move pretty quickly. I would ...

Starting from London City airport, assuming you're travelling with hand luggage only, it's possible to be standing on the DLR platform 10 minutes after wheels down! It's not a big, slow airport, it's a small and quick one. From LCY, your main public transport is the DLR (Docklands Light Railway), though there are also taxis etc (see this FlyerTalk FAQ post ...

The quickest way will undoubtedly be by London Underground and DLR. The simplest and also quite cheap route is to travel from Notting Hill Gate station on the Central Line to Bank, where you can change onto the DLR to reach London City Airport. (If you REALLY want the absolute cheapest you can head West from Notting Hill Gate via Shepherd's Bush, the London ...

I have bags As noobservergirl points out, the obvious route from Notting Hill Gate to London City Airport is the Central Line to Bank, then the DLR to London City Airport. The trouble is that while the DLR is modern enough to have lifts and level access throughout, the Underground is still mostly stuck in the Stone Age accessibility wise, with no lifts ...

Right now, driving time on google maps (taking traffic into account is 44 minutes). Plus time to get out to the taxi rank, get a taxi and all that, say 50 minutes. However you're hitting the mid-morning traffic, which is awful in London. When you get into Paddington, check the tube boards and see what's running. If the Jubilee is running, then do as you'...

46 mins using underground via central line from Notting Hill Gate, and then change onto the DLR at Bank station. If you're heading during off-peak hours (ie early in the morning or late in the evening), then there will be less traffic but I would predict it would be a slightly shorter journey. I use the CityMapper app. It gives you estimated timings using ...

As explained in another thread on FlyerTalk, your baggage has cleared customs in Shannon so it may be transferred onto onward destinations. No further examination by US Customs is required at JFK. However, the layout at JFK Terminal 7 means that there is no easy facility to take bags onto the inter-terminal transfer system from the gate that BA 1 uses. Nor ...

Get the 010 Bus from Parkside to Bow Church DLR, then the DLR to LCY. Much cheaper and easier!
