Heathrow Airport will fall behind Paris CDG or Frankfurt if it doesn’t expand says CEO

London 2018-03-13 11:00 UTC

The CEO of London Heathrow Airport John Holland-Kaye is worried about other European Airports like FRAPORT taking a market share trying to compete with LHR.

He said: “Today’s figures show that Heathrow is filling up fast – if we don’t act soon to expand our nation’s global gateway, the UK will only fall further behind our European rivals. A prosperous, global-trading Britain needs an expanded Heathrow now.”

Heathrow welcomed a record 5.4 million passengers in February, an increase of 2.4% on last year.

Emerging markets were a key source of growth with South Asia up 12.7% and Latin America up 6.5%, boosted by airlines flying larger, fuller aircraft to Heathrow.

Domestic routes also grew strongly in February, up 3.6% as regional airline FlyBe carried an extra 17,000 passengers in the month.
