Heathrow Airport

Heathrow, the UK’s hub airport, is home to more than 80 airlines connecting to more than 180 destinations and welcomes over 75 million passengers each year and plays a vital role in connecting Britain, our passengers and the country’s businesses to the world.

Heathrow is the UK’s biggest port by value, handling over £100bn of trade with non-EU countries in 2016.  When you step onto a plane at Heathrow there will be freight underneath your seat in the belly-hold – British goods bound for a foreign market.

As one of the UK’s largest single site employers, Heathrow also supports the local and national economy by working with our airlines, suppliers and other business partners throughout the UK. Stay up to date with Heathrow news at www.heathrow.com/expansion
