ULEZ expansion - 29 August 2023

London's Ultra Low Emission Zone, or ULEZ, is expanding to encompass all of Greater London, including Heathrow Airport, from the 29 August 2023.


The initiative, implemented by Transport for London (TfL), is aimed at reducing air pollution in London, therefore all vehicles entering the airport must meet certain emissions standards in order to avoid paying a daily charge.


The daily charge for non-compliant vehicles is £12.50 for most vehicles, including cars, vans, and motorcycles.


The charge will be in addition to any other fees or charges associated with entering the airport. The charge only applies when a vehicle is driven within the ULEZ zone, and does not apply to stationary vehicles including when cars are parked at Heathrow.


Please note, if you have booked Meet & Greet or Valet Parking with a non-compliant vehicle, and have selected a different exit terminal to your entry terminal, you will be liable for payment of a ULEZ charge to transfer your vehicle to another terminal.

1 December 2021

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

Last month we outlined how we expected to see between 730-900 flight movements a day during November, plateauing compared to October as additional traffic from the opening of the US was offset by the reduction in short-haul leisure travel following the end of Summer. The lowest daily number of flights in the month was 747 (10 November) and the highest was 886 (28 November), well within our predicted range.

Our forecast for December is between 500-1070 flight movements a day, with a large range because there are typically far fewer flights on Christmas Day. However, while growth is currently expected going into December which is typical for this time of year, this may be affected by the impact of the new Covid-19 Omicron variant and Government restrictions around the world. 

As you’ll be aware, in June 2021 we mobilised Terminal 4 as a dedicated red list arrivals facility (RLAF) for all passengers arriving into Heathrow from red list countries. As several countries have recently been added onto the red list, from 1 December Terminal 4 will once again act as a separate arrivals facility for red list countries, separating these arrivals from other passengers in our other terminals. We support the Government’s temporary measures to protect public health as we learn more about the new variant.
