    The following provides an update on the number of flight movements we expect to see at Heathrow during November.

    Last month we outlined how we expected to see between 690-950 flight movements a day during October, with a large range due to the half term holiday and the start of our winter schedule at the end of the month. The lowest daily number of flights in the month was 704 (5 October) and the highest was 902 (31 October), well within our predicted range.

    Our forecast for November ranges between 730-900 flight movements a day, with significant daily variation throughout the month as we continue to see more traffic at the weekends than during the week. However, we expect November to plateau compared to October due to seasonality, and although the US is now open the additional traffic is offset by a reduction in short-haul leisure travel following the end of Summer.
