Case study: London City Airport

A high profile and heavyweight project, the redesign of the IT resilience backbone includes the deployment of a modular datacentre solution. The project has proved 100% successful and the recently received Datacentre Dynamics Award for Innovation that the Modular solution has won is testament to Mavin Powercube’s understanding and capabilities.

The Client

London City Airport experienced record growth in 2007 with over 2.9 million passengers travelling through the terminal. This figure represents a 23 per cent increase over 2006.

With an increasing focus on East London and the Thames Gateway, especially following the awarding of the 2012 Olympic Games to London, the role of London City Airport as a key regenerator and major employer has strengthened further. London City Airport is only 3 miles from the main Games location in Stratford and by 2010 will have direct, frequent DLR services to the heart of the Olympic village.

London City Airport’s Master Plan sets out our growth and development plans through to 2030. It has been developed in response to the Government’s Aviation White Paper, ‘The Future of Air Transport’, which requires specified airport operators to outline their vision for growth up to 2030. The airport Master Plan demonstrates that we can accommodate 8 million passengers by 2030 to support the growth of London and the continued demand for business travel, whilst also remaining good local neighbours and maintaining an excellent environmental record.

Since the recent acquisition of London City Airport by Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP); the focus has very much been centred upon evolving the airports existing operational infrastructure, in a tangible format that will continually deliver an efficient and effective service to all LCY’s customers…
