We’re full, says Heathrow

[ February 26, 2018   //   ]

Heathrow Airport said that cargo capacity on key routes to Shanghai, Delhi, Mumbai, Los Angeles, Tokyo Haneda and Dubai – which account for 18% of the airport’s total cargo volume – are virtually full and unable to accommodate further growth.

It said that the data underscored the importance of expanding the airport at pace to ensure that Britain can thrive as after Brexit.

On 16 February, BIFA director Robert Keen said he shared the frustration of National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) chairman Sir John Armitt at the lack of progress on a third runway at Heathrow and agreed that the government needs to deliver on its promise of making a decision runway by the summer.
His comments came as the NIC published its first Annual Monitoring Report.
