Heathrow has enjoyed a record-breaking first half of a year in 2018.
During the first six months of this year, the airport’s sales and continued passenger growth pushed revenues up 2.3% to £1.405bn and increased adjusted EBITDA by 1.6% to £848m.
Passenger satisfaction scores pushed up demand to fly from Heathrow to an all-time high of 38.1 million passengers. Four new connections to China in 2018 helped trade through Heathrow grow 2.2% to 841,449 tonnes of cargo.
John Holland-Kaye, Chief Executive Officer of Heathrow, said: “2018 will be a year for the record books – England’s footballers have made the nation proud, we’ve had the best summer sunshine in years and Parliament voted overwhelmingly to expand Heathrow.
“We’re proud to be the front door of a nation flying high, and we’ll continue delivering a great passenger service and the global trading links that will keep the UK thriving for decades to come.”
