As people across the UK made their preparations for reuniting with family and friends, Heathrow handled over 134 thousand metric tonnes of cargo.
Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) was named the best airline based on noise and emissions performance at Heathrow in Q3, assisted by the introduction of A320neos, better track-keeping and continuous descent approach.
Nearly 300 small to medium sized businesses attended the 23rd annual flagship Heathrow Business Summit and 87 apprentices graduated from the Heathrow Employment and Skills Academy.
The airport revealed a cutting-edge centralised tracking system for expansion that will help to coordinate construction between the four logistics hubs that will be announced next year.
Heathrow Chief Executive John Holland-Kaye, said:
“Following a record breaking November, we are expecting this festive getaway to be the biggest yet as family and friends travel home. As demand for air travel increases, we are working with the aviation and energy industries to decarbonise flight."
"We are accelerating our own plans to cut emissions from Heathrow airport operations and those will be carbon neutral from 2020.”
