London Ashford (Lydd) Airport

City: Lydd, EN


Lydd Airport (London Ashford Airport) has operated on the Dungeness Peninsula in Kent since 1954 and was once one of the busiest airports in the UK (in 1958 it handled 223,000 passengers, which was 37,000 more than London Gatwick). More recently it has been limited to business and general aviation and a cross Channel flight to Le Touquet in France. The airport believes it can contribute to the southeast England aviation capacity 'issue' as it is not constrained by long, time consuming approach paths.
