Heathrow recorded 75.7 million passengers (+1.0%) in 2016 with a more resilient UK economy boosting passenger volumes at the end of 2016, with the trend continuing into the early weeks of 2017.

 

The airport also saw a 3.0% increase in cargo volumes and new services to Jakarta, San Jose, Santiago and Inverness.
   
Strong financial performance produced revenue of £2,807 million (+1.5%) and Adjusted EBITDA of £1,682 million (+4.8%), reflecting continued cost control and strong retail income growth.

John Holland-Kaye, Chief Executive Officer of Heathrow, said: “2016 was a milestone year for Heathrow. I am very proud of what our 76,000 colleagues have achieved. We gave better service at lower cost to a record number of passengers and helped British businesses across the country trade more with the rest of the world."
