London's Heathrow Airport broke the 80 million passengers per annum milestone in 2018, accommodating 80.1 million (+2.7%) during a record breaking year.
In a first for the UK aviation industry, Heathrow has today set out its plans to expand in a carbon neutral way.
It will no doubt be accused of a publicity stunt, but London Heathrow today announced that it will waive up to £1 million in landing fees for the first airline to introduce a regular electric-hybrid aircraft service from the UK gateway.
An influx of tourists drawn to London by the recent Royal Wedding ensured that Heathrow enjoyed its busiest ever May, handling a record 6.7 million passengers (+3.1%) during the month.
London's Heathrow Airport experienced its busiest ever day for departures on March 30 when 136,000 passengers flew out of the UK hub.
Heathrow has reached a key milestone in its pledge to ‘Go Electric’ with the delivery of the 50th electric vehicle to the airport’s fleet.
