    Heathrow returns to TV this summer

    Heathrow

    The TV cameras take you behind the scenes at Heathrow once more for summer 2019. It’s time to hit Series Link – Heathrow: Britain’s Busiest Airport is back on ITV from 21st May.

    Series 5 of the behind-the-scenes documentary brings you 12 half-hour episodes of life at the airport. Episode 1 airs at 8pm on Tuesday 21st.

    When and where to watch
    • Tuesday 21st May, 8:30pm
    • Wednesday 22nd May, 8pm
    • Then 8:30pm every Wednesday from 5th June–7th August.

    Catch the series on ITV or online at ITV.com. Transmission times are subject to change so please check TV listings.  

    It will be longer, with new characters, a new voice … it’ll be just better!

    I think the series resonates with everyone. After all, 75% of the population has flown somewhere.

    The series takes 26 weeks and there are 22 members of the team. We film 700 hours but only six hours make the series.

    Passenger Experience Manager (PEM) – it’s different every day and you’re dealing with that wonderful species the human holidaymaker. Or Senior Airfield Officer – I’ve become a plane geek doing this show and I LOVE being on the airfield.

    Heathrow ALWAYS copes, be it emergency landings, medical emergencies, protests, packed terminals … nothing is beyond the 78,000-strong staff to sort.

    Hillary Clinton was a good spot, but we would love to film with the love of Sue’s life, Tom Jones.

    It’s bigger and better with NEW fabulous characters and behind-the-scenes footage of areas not seen before.
