  • As the UK’s only international hub airport, Heathrow is a crucial connection between the UK the rest of the World.

    The smooth operation of our airport is dependent on the sourcing of a wide range of works, goods and services. From Cyber and Technology, Infrastructure and Operational procurement. To give an indication of the scale, the airport spend was over £1.5bn in 2019 with more than 1,200 suppliers from around the UK.

    Given the scale of Heathrow’s operation and its impact on the UK economy, Heathrow approaches its supply chain with an inclusive approach. This includes striving to work with partners and stakeholders of all sizes, including looking for opportunities to support local businesses, disadvantaged and underrepresented people and companies and proactively identify new suppliers to join our team.
