ULEZ expansion - 29 August 2023

London's Ultra Low Emission Zone, or ULEZ, is expanding to encompass all of Greater London, including Heathrow Airport, from the 29 August 2023.


The initiative, implemented by Transport for London (TfL), is aimed at reducing air pollution in London, therefore all vehicles entering the airport must meet certain emissions standards in order to avoid paying a daily charge.


The daily charge for non-compliant vehicles is £12.50 for most vehicles, including cars, vans, and motorcycles.


The charge will be in addition to any other fees or charges associated with entering the airport. The charge only applies when a vehicle is driven within the ULEZ zone, and does not apply to stationary vehicles including when cars are parked at Heathrow.


Please note, if you have booked Meet & Greet or Valet Parking with a non-compliant vehicle, and have selected a different exit terminal to your entry terminal, you will be liable for payment of a ULEZ charge to transfer your vehicle to another terminal.

Airports Commission

On 25 October 2016, the Government confirmed that Heathrow is its preferred option for expansion of airport capacity in the South East. This means there is now a clear direction from the government that allows Heathrow to develop its plans for a new runway.


  • On July 1, 2015, the Airports Commission recommended Heathrow expansion, in its final report, as the best option to maintain the UK’s status as a global aviation hub.
  • The recommendation follows a 2.5 year, £20 million analysis into aviation capacity in the UK. Over 50 proposals were considered during the process.
  • Significantly, The Airports Commission found that up to £211bn in economic benefits and up to 180,000 jobs across the UK will be created with Heathrow expansion.
  • Heathrow – the UK’s hub airport – has been operating at 98% capacity for a decade and expansion will create space for another 260,000 flights.
