January 15, 2019 / Airport Technology
London Heathrow Airport handled a record 80.1 million passengers in 2018, an increase of 2.7% compared to the same period last year. The growth was boosted by the use of larger and fuller aircraft. The latest achievement comes as Heathrow launched fresh consultation on a third runway expansion plan. This milestone means Heathrow has joined an elite club of seven airports in the world to achieve the 80 million annual passenger milestone. More than 1.6 million tonnes of cargo traveled through the UK’s largest airport throughout 2018.
