Heathrow Records Busiest Ever First Half of Year


Heathrow has recorded its busiest ever 6 months, with 38.1 million passengers passing through the airport in the first half of 2018, a 2.5 per cent increase from last year. 

Retail growth has also increased by 4.8 per cent. Sunglasses have proved particularly popular, with over 700 pairs sold each day so far this year.

Commenting on the news, John Holland-Kaye, Chief Executive Officer at Heathrow, said:

“This year will be a year for the record books – England’s footballers have made the nation proud, we’ve had the best summer sunshine in years and parliament voted overwhelmingly to expand Heathrow.

“We’re proud to be the front door of a nation flying high, and we’ll continue delivering a great passenger service and the global trading links that will keep the UK thriving for decades to come.”
