Heathrow has achieved a 29th consecutive month of growth, welcoming a record 17.9 million travellers in quarter one of 2019, more passengers than ever before.
At the same time, higher retail spending resulted in a healthy £679 million in overall revenues.
Adjusted EBITDA increased by one per cent to £406 million over the period.
With expansion on the horizon, Heathrow is set to invest nearly £1 billion into the airport over the coming year to prepare us for the future growth that expansion will unlock.
Following a successful consultation on modernising the airspace around Heathrow in the first three months of the year, Heathrow is preparing to unveil its detailed preferred masterplan for public consultation in June.
John Holland-Kaye, chief executive officer of Heathrow, said: “This is an important year for Heathrow as we put in place the building blocks that will define Britain’s global connectivity for decades to come.
“With passengers continuing to choose Heathrow in record numbers, the strong backing of global investors and a credible plan to expand responsibly, we’re ramping up for growth and excited about building a bigger and better hub airport for Britain.”
