London City Airport is again open on Tuesday morning. The airport management reported the completion of the operation to retrieve the World War Second unexploded bomb from the Thames.
According to the message of the management of London City Airport, the airport will operate in the usual mode on Tuesday. The management has warned about possible changes in the schedule of the morning flights, but serious delays are not expected.
Passengers are strongly advised not to come to the airport earlier than two hours before the flight.
London City Airport was closed on Sunday night because of the discovery of the unexploded World War Second projectile near the airport. A 500-kg shell was discovered during construction work in the Thames, on the site of George V Dock.
All flights scheduled for Monday were canceled or transferred to other airports.
On Sunday night, the police created a 214-meter exclusion area to protect the public. Part of the airport, which was included into the exclusion area, was closed, and nearby objects were evacuated.
The road near the exclusion zone, in the borough of Newham, was also opened on Tuesday morning.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: "On Sunday, at about 10:00, the police and the Royal Navy made a decision to isolate the 214-meter zone from the shell, specialists examined the bomb and considered the safest ways to neutralize it and took out it from the Thames."
In London City Airport, it was strongly recommended that passengers specify the information about the departure before leaving the house.
