London City has taken the opportunity to create a video called ‘A Little Respect’ which showcases the extra measures that have been added to the passenger experience, to protect their wellbeing and make everyone feel safe at the airport.
The video focuses on how the airport will offer safe, careful and speedy journeys to customers as more domestic and European flights return. It has taken inspiration from synth-pop duo Erasure to create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere at the capital’s most central airport.
Alison FitzGerald, COO of London City Airport, said: “We want to reassure passengers that it is safe to travel and I hope this video allows them to understand the measures we have taken to protect their health and wellbeing.
“We also hope to demonstrate that, despite additional safety measures, the uniquely important aspects of the customer experience at City have not changed at all. We will still be able offer the fastest airport experience in London and our staff will continue to welcome our customers in a warm, kind and respectful East London way.”
