Since 1946 Heathrow has been connecting people from around the globe, making us the world’s busiest international airport. In recent years, since 2003, £11bn has been invested in improving Heathrow. This represents one of the largest private sector investments in UK infrastructure over this period – making every journey better as well as providing jobs and supporting the UK’s economic growth. We’ve opened new terminals such as Terminal 2 and 5, extensively refurbished the other terminals and made lots of improvements right across the airport.
Going forward we’ll continue to invest in making every journey better.
You can already experience the difference this investment has made with a quicker arrival, smoother departure and a better connection. Behind the scenes, we are also improving the journey of your luggage by investing £900 million to create the world's largest integrated baggage system that helps make sure you and your baggage ‘take off’ and are reunited on time. While we’re working on making your journey better we’re committed to making sure your journey is a smooth one and our airport continues to operate as normal.
We always look forward to welcoming you to Heathrow so you can see the difference for yourself.
