The Demand for Middle East flights have increased and has helped raise passenger numbers by 2.8% in the month of October. Which is 6.5 million more than last October.

This marks the 12th consecutive record breaking month for the airport and saw 11.8% more passengers travelling to the Gulf resulting in more packed aircrafts.

Heathrow chief executive John Holland-Kaye said: “Record passenger and cargo figures underline Heathrow’s position as a critical national asset.

“We remain on track to expand Heathrow in a way that is affordable, financeable and which meets all our environmental obligations, securing Britain’s place as one of the world’s great trading nations in the early years of Brexit.”
