Heathrow unveils delivery plans for next 10 years after ‘transformational’ decade

Heathrow has reported a strong end to what it calls a ‘transformational’ decade for the airport.

The airport reported its “busiest December ever” with a 3.1 per cent passenger increase compared with the previous year.

Since 2010 the airport has welcomed an additional 15 million passengers, with 18 per cent passenger growth over the decade.

The decade saw the opening of Terminal 2 - the Queen’s Terminal - in 2014 as well as the unveiling of its sustainability strategy Heathrow 2.0 in 2017.

Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye commented: “The past decade has been transformational for Heathrow and the investments that we’ve made in our infrastructure, our people and our processes are paying off for passengers. But it doesn’t end there.

“By the end of this new decade of delivery, a third runway will have given Britain more hub capacity than our rivals in France or Germany, making this country a winner and the best-connected country in the world.

“Regular, direct flights to all the major cities in the US, India and China - the great economies of the 21st century - will put all of Britain at the heart of global trade and we look forward to delivering this economic growth in a way that aligns with the Committee on Climate Change’s net zero 2050 target.”
