Heathrow, the UK’s hub airport, is home to more than 80 airlines connecting to more than 180 destinations.
In addition to welcoming over 75 million passengers each year, Heathrow is also Britain’s most important port, carrying more freight by value than all other UK airports combined. Last year, 29% of all non-EU exports were transported via the UK’s only hub airport. In today’s global economy, our success is Britain’s success.
Following an investment of more than £11 billion over the past 10 years, Heathrow has become one of the biggest and, according to passengers, one of the best airports in the world. Critical to our success has been our relationship with suppliers. At every stage of planning, design and construction, Heathrow seeks to utilise Britain’s supply chain in the best way possible, adopting a unique approach to procurement.
To ensure the many procurement opportunities of expansion are maximised, we have pledged to create Supply Chain Hubs across the UK. These hubs will be an assembly depot for materials that will go on to become part of Europe’s largest private infrastructure project. Find out more at www.heathrow.com/takingbritainfurther.
