    The following provides an update on our runway operations and the number of flight movements we expect to see at Heathrow this month.

    Runway operations

    We are currently on dual runway operations as usual, alternating at 15:00 when we are on westerly operations to provide local communities with respite.

    Flight movements

    Last month we outlined how we expected to see between 510-800 flight movements during August, with ongoing daily variation as we have seen throughout the pandemic and a steady build expected through the month. The lowest daily number of flights in the month was 539 (3 August) and the highest was 726 (29 August), well within our predicted range. 

    Our forecast for September ranges between 600-850 flight movements a day, with a large range due to continuing daily variation, the end of the Summer holiday period and uncertainty on whether further restrictions might be lifted and the outcome of the upcoming Global Travel Taskforce review.
