    Heathrow Expansion

    Heathrow’s plans for expansion at the airport with a third runway to the north-west of the existing two are currently supported by Government policy through the Airports National Policy Statement. Expansion at the airport would create tens of thousands of jobs and billions in economic benefits to the UK.

    Demand for aviation will recover from COVID-19, and the additional capacity at an expanded Heathrow  - the UK’s only hub airport - would allow Britain as a sovereign nation to compete more effectively for trade.

    As passenger numbers recover, our immediate focus will be to continue to ensure the safe operation of the airport and to maintain our service levels while we consult with investors, government, airline customers and regulators on our next steps.
