Heathrow Airport Infographic Published on 09/10/2013
Heathrow Airport, 15 miles from central London, is regarded as the hub of the aviation world. Flying more than 65 million passengers to over 180 destinations in over 90 countries each year, it’s no wonder that some 90 airlines operate from Heathrow.
Two-thirds of the United Kingdom’s long-haul flights depart from Heathrow, including the UK’s only direct air links to emerging world cities such as Shanghai, Beijing, Mumbai, and Sao Paulo. And it’s not just passengers flying in and out of the world’s busiest international airport; more than half of all the UK’s air freight passes through Heathrow.
