  • General Heathrow FAQs

    Common questions about Heathrow.

    We have extensive libraries of airport and aviation photography. Image buyers and businesses can use our photographs for an appropriate fee – visit our commercial photo library for details. Media organisations can also make use of our editorial photo library – visit mediacentre.heathrowairport.com.

    The UK Government imposes Air Passenger Duty (APD) – it's paid by passengers and collected from airlines. The rate varies by ticket and journey type. Heathrow is not involved in levying or collecting APD. To find out more, see the HM Revenue and Customs website.

    For information about airport charges, which are service fees paid to Heathrow by the airlines (and not a tax), see our conditions of use page.

    Taxes and charges are explained on the Civil Aviation Authority website.
