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.

Heathrow Jobs and Careers Fair 2019

Meet Samantha and Ella, two success stories from the Jobs and Careers Fairs

We caught up with Samantha and Ella about how attending the Jobs and Careers Fair has led, in one case, to an apprenticeship at British Airways, and in another a career change from architect to Integration Manager.

Tell us about yourself!

Ella: I’m 19 years old and I live in Lower Sunbury in Spelthorne.

Samantha: I’m 34 years old and live in Ashford, also in Spelthorne.

How did you find out about your current job? 

Ella: It was through the Heathrow Jobs and Careers Fair when I was in year 11 at school. I had no idea what I wanted to do so I thought it was best to explore many different options (apprenticeships as well as university). There were so many stalls at the Fair offering lots of different careers from hospitality to retail to aviation and the police.

Samantha: I visited the Heathrow Jobs and Careers Fair in February 2014. I had been working for the past 8 years as an Architectural Assistant since graduating with a degree in Architecture. I was seeking to change my career and looking for opportunities in the construction industry based in or around Heathrow.

It was a really big decision to change my career but I wanted to make a fresh start and to challenge my boundaries. I talked to lots of different companies about their opportunities but when I reached the Dyer & Butler stand they were particularly warm and welcoming. The staff suggested that the company may be open minded to considering candidates with different experiences and after a couple of interviews I got the job!

What skills has your current job taught you?

Ella: A number of things – persuasive communication, negotiation, being an effective team member, having the ability to deliver under pressure, the list could go on.

Samantha: I manage an ever growing team which is developing my leadership and managerial skills. I have also gained a better understanding of the industry and I represent our department to key stakeholders which has enhanced my self-confidence.

What difference did going to the Jobs and Careers Fair make to you?

Ella: The Careers Fair made a huge difference to me. It’s always a big decision having to decide what you want to do when you leave school or college but I’m so glad I chose to join the world of work at British Airways by learning on the job and working towards a qualification.

Samantha: It changed my life. I found the whole experience very inspiring. It was the stepping stone to finding a career that I really enjoy and value and I have not looked back!
