Rail disruption - 30 September & 1, 4, 6 October 2023

Due to planned engineering works and industrial action, there will be disruption to rail and London Underground services between Heathrow and Central London between Saturday 30 September and Friday 6 October 2023.


Over this period, there will be disruption to Heathrow Express and Piccadilly line services. The Elizabeth line will be operating as normal, and inter-terminal transfer services between all terminals will also be completed by these services.


Passengers should plan their journeys before travelling, and allow for additional time where necessary as services will be busier than normal.

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.

The following provides an update on our plans for our runway operations and the number of flight movements we expect to see at Heathrow in July.

Runway operations

In our previous operational update on 9 June we mentioned that we were not able to predict how long we would need to continue in single runway operations, but we would continue to review the situation and keep you updated.

We can now confirm that we will return to dual runway operations from Monday 5 July at 06:00, alternating at 15:00 as usual when we are on westerly operations to provide local communities with respite. This means that next week we will be landing on the northern runway (27R) until 15:00 and then we’ll switch to the southern runway (27L) if we are on westerly operations. The full alternation pattern can be found here.

We are returning to using both runways to accommodate planned airfield infrastructure repair works starting in July. This will ensure that we have both a safe and efficient operation whilst providing respite to our local communities.

Flight movements

Earlier this month we outlined how we expected to see between 370-560 flight movements during June, with continued daily variation and an expected increase towards the end of the month. The lowest daily number of flights in the month so far is 376 (8 June) and the highest is 528 (27 June), well within our predicted range. Our forecast for July ranges between 400-860 flight movements a day, depending on what action the government takes on 19 July.
