London’s 5th Busiest Airport: Traffic & Delays
London City Airport (LCY) is an international airport in London. It is located a short distance east of Canary Wharf, a major user of the airport. The airport was developed in 1986-1987.
In 2015, London City airport recorded an 18% increase in the number of passengers handled, an 18% rise from 2014 numbers. That number was the highest ever recorded for the airport throughout its existence. As of 2015, the airport was the fifth busiest in terms of passengers and aircrafts movement in the London area, behind Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted and Luton. Overall, it is the 13th busiest in the UK. Over a dozen airlines operate regular flights to and from London City Airport. The major names include: Alitalia, Lufthansa, Flybe and British Airways.

AirClaims has a list of uk airport delays here.
As ever, weather induced cancellations will always be top on the list. One of the worst cases was seen in October 2012 when more than 500 flights were held-up with 50 cancelled following a 60-hour blanket of fog.
As a single runway airport, any issue on the runway often leads to extended stoppages. In May 2015, a stress fracture on the runway led to the delay of flights for hours as maintenance teams worked to correct the problem. Strikes affecting other parts of the UK aviation sector and the EU sector in general has also lead to further hindrances. The latest episode occurred in March 2016.
