    The following is an update on the number of flight movements we expect to see at Heathrow in April along with our plans for runway operations.

    Flight movements

    At the beginning of March we outlined how we expected to see between 230-400 flight movements during March, amid continued uncertainty over when travel restrictions and lockdown would be lifted. The lowest daily number of flights in the month was 261 (9 March) and the highest was 390 (28 March), well within our predicted range.

    We are expecting flight numbers in April to be between 260-440 flight movements a day, with a wide range similar to previous months due to daily variations and continued uncertainty over travel restrictions.

    Runway operations

    As mentioned in our previous update, on 1 January 2021 we consolidated our operations and returned to single runway operations due to the significant reduction in passenger numbers at Heathrow in addition to resourcing constraints.

    At present we are not able to predict how long we will need to operate in this way, but we will continue to review this situation and will look to revert to our usual operation when the number of daily aircraft movements significantly increases. We will keep you updated to confirm when we expect to operate from both runways again.
