The number of passengers welcomed by London Heathrow Airport is growing by leaps and bounds. It has witnessed record growth for the 29th consecutive month. In March 2019, over 6.5 million passengers arrived and departed through the airport.



The key factors for this growth are St Patrick’s Day, Mother’s Day and positive attitude to travel despite Brexit uncertainty.




Heathrow Airport has several feathers in its cap. Heathrow Airport was voted amongst the world’s top 10 airports overall. It won the accolades of the ‘Best airport in Western Europe’ and ‘World’s Best Airport Shopping’.




Heathrow CEO, John Holland-Kaye, said: “Despite Brexit uncertainty, Heathrow remains a bright light for the UK, with the role we play in keeping people and products moving evident.” Their new domestic connections will link more regions and nations.



March 2019, saw splendid performance from Africa (6.2 per cent) and Latin America (23 per cent)  counter. It saw an increase by 6.2 per cent compared to the same time in 2018. This was due to additional services to Brazil and increased volumes to Mexico.




In March 2019, Heathrow launched the airport’s new Innovation Prize to fund ideas and solutions addressing aviation environmental impact. The prize is sponsored by Heathrow’s new Centre of Excellence for Sustainability. It will allow Heathrow to test and develop ideas that encourage sustainable aviation.
