Heathrow top spot under threat, says airport boss

[ February 11, 2020   //   ]

Heathrow Airport chief executive, John Holland-Kaye, is warning that Paris Charles de Gaulle is set to overtake the London gateway as Europe’s leading hub airport within the next two years. Despite a record breaking start to the year at Heathrow, with passengers growing by 2.9% in January,  Charles de Gaulle is growing at twice that rate. Over 115,000 tonnes of cargo moved through Heathrow – the UK’s largest port by value – with the UK domestic markets top for cargo growth at 60.6%. John Holland-Kaye said that Heathrow’s new runway was vital to its future.
