As one of the busiest airports in the world, Heathrow sees an average of more than 1,400 arriving and departing flights every day. That’s more than one flight per minute. Making all this happen is an exciting and rewarding job. In airport and airside operations we craft and deliver new technology and infrastructure, as well as assuring all airside works, safeguarding the aerodrome and environment and maintaining our operating licence. It’s our team’s role to work with our customers and suppliers to ensure the safe, efficient and effective operation of the airfield and aircraft.
