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 is an update on the number of flight movements we expect to see at Heathrow in November.

Flight movements

At the end of September, we said we expected to see an increase in flight movements in October compared with September mainly due to airlines trying to stimulate the market by increasing the number of flights. We expected to see between 520-700 flight movements a day during the month, based on the information available to us at the time, although numbers could vary as airlines’ schedules are continuously being revised. As of today (29 October 2020), the lowest number of flights in the month so far has been 453 (20 October) and the highest has been 687 (25 October).

Based on our latest forecast and the information currently available, we are expecting to see between 360-690 flight movements a day during November. The higher end of the range is mainly due to the end of school half term falling in the first few days of November. However following this, we are expecting flight movements to drop to between 360-500. This decrease is due to a combination of factors, namely the current status of the pandemic and November typically being a quieter month. Of course these numbers may vary based on the reasons outlined above and the impending France and Germany lockdowns.

Winter period

As mentioned in our update last month, Heathrow has unfortunately not seen the recovery in passenger numbers hoped for over the summer season, and due to continued travel and quarantine restrictions, we face uncertainty over the winter period on how COVID-19 will affect our flight numbers. This uncertainty means it is difficult to predict how our operations will be impacted during winter.

As a result, we will continuously review the situation and the implications for the airport. This may include further consolidation of our operations including the possibility of returning to single runway operations if flight numbers significantly reduce from current volumes.

We will keep you updated on any changes to our runway operations.
