Nearly 75 million passengers travelled through Heathrow in 2015, an increase of 2.2% on 2014 and the airport’s highest ever number of annual passengers. Heathrow was recognised by passengers as the “Best Airport in Western Europe” in the Skytrax Global Airport Awards and awarded “Airport of the Year” in the Independent’s Travel Awards.
Larger, quieter aircraft contributed to the increase in annual passenger volumes, with seats per aircraft increasing 2.1% to 209, load factors remaining constant at 76.5% and passengers per aircraft rising to 1.9% to 160. At the end of 2015, over 20 daily A380 departures and arrivals were operated by eight airlines.
Emerging markets continued to be a driver of traffic growth at Heathrow, with passenger volumes up 14% to China, 8% to Latin America and 6% to the Middle East.
Heathrow continued to play a leading role in helping Britain’s exports reach global markets, with the UK’s largest port by value recording cargo volumes of 1.5 million metric tonnes for the year.
On the back of thousands of supporters across the UK making their voices heard in the recent National Consultation, Heathrow has today launched “Best for Britain, Backed by Britain”. The report not only showcases the overwhelming support across the UK, but outlines why Heathrow expansion is the best option for the UK. The report also serves as a reminder to the Airport Commission that Heathrow is financially and environmentally deliverable, pointing to the growing local support and backing across all UK’s nations and regions.
