Heathrow has strongest ever November

Posted 12 December 2018 · Add Comment

In another consecutive record month, 6.11m passengers travelled through Heathrow in November, up 3.3%.



This is the first time that passenger volumes in November have exceeded six million.

North America saw growth of 5.8% from a significant base, because of more competitive pricing in the region. While Africa saw the biggest percentage increase, up 10.2%, driven by new routes to Marrakech, the Seychelles and Durban.​

Over 130,000 metric tonnes of cargo travelled through Heathrow in November with Brazil, China and Turkey performing strongly.

Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye said: “Record numbers of passengers are choosing to use Heathrow because we offer outstanding service and better value for our passengers. But growth must be sustainable and our blueprint for carbon neutral growth is an important step towards our ultimate goal of zero carbon aviation.”
