Heathrow Hits Record-Breaking Figures


London’s Heathrow airport hit a record number of passengers last month, welcoming 6.76 million passengers in June.

This is a 2.3% increase from June 2016, bringing the total number of people travelling through the airport to 77 million for the first time in the last 12 months.

The hub also hit a daily record with 259,917 passengers flying through on 30 June, marking its busiest day ever.

Commenting on the news, Heathrow chief executive John Holland-Kaye said:

“Our record breaking year, month and day figures show Heathrow continues to be the trade and tourist gateway to all of the UK.

“To keep Britain competitive, we need expansion to build more connections for British passengers and exporters and we are glad to see the government pushing forward on the next stages of the delivery.  Together we are showing the world the UK remains open for business.”
