Rail disruption - 4 & 8 October 2023

Due to planned industrial action and engineering works, there will be disruption to rail and London Underground services between Heathrow and Central London on Wednesday 4 and Sunday 8 October 2023.


Over this period, there will be disruption to Heathrow Express and Elizabeth line services


Please note, the London Underground (Tube) strikes that would have affected the Piccadilly line on Wednesday 4 and Friday 6 October 2023 have now been suspended, and the Piccadilly line will be running as normal throughout this period. 


Passengers should plan their journeys before travelling, and allow for additional time where necessary as services will be busier than normal.

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.

I started in Engineering Operations and spent several months shadowing the Airport Control Engineers (ACE). This helped me understand Engineering at Heathrow on a broader scale and how everything works and links with one another. I then moved onto Asset Performance, and during my time there, I did projects looking at Pre-Condition Air (PCA) units and Airbridges. 

I moved to the Electronics, Instrumentation, Control and Automation (E&ICA) team as part of Civil & Operational Engineering. Here I looked at Maximo Compliance Issues, Supplier Relations & Contract Management etc. Then it was onto Rail Engineering to look at HVAC systems, Rail Alignment Vehicles, New Lifting Procedures and more. This led me to Airside Engineering, where I looked at Stillages, Mass Damping and Chilled Water in the Control Tower, Tunnels, and lots more! It’s been great, and I’ve learnt so much it’s unbelievable. 

I’ve developed, improved, and honed so many skills and behaviours in my time here. These include (but are not limited to) teamwork, collaboration, organisation, time management, communication, project management, leadership, inclusion, resilience, tenacity, persuasion, engagement etc.

I chose Heathrow because it’s a name that is recognised around the world. It’s such a unique place to work, and I’ve always loved planes, travelling, and aviation. So, to get to work at an airport was like a dream come true. The people at Heathrow are one of the main reasons it’s a great place to work. Not to mention the airport environment, variety of projects to get involved in, multi-disciplinary engineering, and a massive asset base! It’s an engineer’s playground if you want to learn about various systems.

The programme has helped me gain invaluable experience in engineering and asset management. It has greatly benefitted my personal and professional development and has enabled me to progress towards becoming a Chartered Engineer. I know that with everything that I’ve learnt at Heathrow, I will apply in all my future jobs both inside and outside of the airport. The fact that I’ve worked at Britain’s Busiest Airport will surely be a feather in my cap for years to come.

I’ve learnt so much and worked so hard throughout the pandemic, despite finding working from home much more difficult than I thought I would. I’ve kept being optimistic about the future, and this positivity has carried me along. I’ve been able to fit in so much in terms of projects, experience and training that it’s built up my skills to another level and given me a level of personal resilience like never before.
