Under the Policing and Crime Act 2009 MOPAC recover the full costs of policing City Airport net of costs met from the Counter Terrorism grant.

In 2014/15 the full cost of policing City Airport is estimated to be £4.2m, and of this £2.2m is met from Counter Terrorism grant with the balance met from City Airport.

It is too early to estimate the expected expenditure for an expanded Airport; however MOPAC would continue to recover the full costs, net of counter terrorism grant, from London City Airport.
