London City Airport job creation estimate halved
it has been reported. In July the airport was given the go-ahead to expand flights
from 80,000 to 120,000 by the end of 2010 on the back of projections that the
development would bring 1,000 new jobs to East London.
the airport had now acknowledged that only 480 new jobs will be created in the
near future – less than half of the original estimate.
