Runway at the London City Airport ‘closed’ to let yacht through for London Boat Show

A runway of the London City Airport was “closed” for a short time to make way for the Sunseeker International’s 131 Yacht that is all set to get people mesmerized at the London Boat Show. It was reported that the airport had to shut down one of its runways to let the yeahct pass via King George V Lock on its way to Excel centre. 131 Yacht will be the largest model at this year’s show.
Still, an airport spokesperson stated that the scheduling squad arranged for boats to pass by the airport at times when there are natural breaks in scheduling. She further stated that quite a lot of boats come through for the boat show and their operations teams time it perfectly around their flight schedule, so when there are natural gaps, they allow them through.
131 Yacht will be the biggest boat ever to be showcased at the London Boat Show and would be on the place from 8th to 17th January. Sean Robertson, the Sunseeker International sales director told that the London Boat Show is always really exciting and it attracts a great international selection of clients. He is delighted that they are introducing this special new yacht, the first – and largest – of 4 new Sunseeker models set to debut next year.
