First airport Bloomberg Hub opened at London City

The first airport Bloomberg Hub introduced to enhance connectivity for business travellers was opened at London City Airport (LCY) yesterday.

The high-tech hub features a medial wall, media ticker, media panel and lounge delivering news, market data and travel information, while digital touch points have also been situated around the airport.

The lounge section can seat more than 180 travellers, and includes an Apps Bar, 24/7 Bloomberg television coverage, charging stations, Wi-Fi, workstations, a free shoe shine service and other services.

Nearly two thirds of LCY’s 3.4 million passengers it handled during 2013 were travelling for business purposes.

Declan Collier, LCY CEO, explains: “Our agreement with Bloomberg will set us apart from the other airports in and around London, cementing our position as the business traveller’s airport of choice – but we cannot stand still and will need to work together with Bloomberg on a constant basis to continue to meet the customer’s changing needs.”

Dan Doctoroff, CEO and president of Bloomberg L.P, says LCY’s customers are business travellers, who ‘value things Bloomberg does best’ – providing accurate, relevant and timely information that helps them make better business decisions.

“The Bloomberg Hub at LCY is a great example of this; it is our biggest brand initiative worldwide and reinforces our continued investment in London as a leading global financial centre,” Doctoroff adds.
