Heathrow introduces new charge making travel even more expensive for holidaying Britons

Heathrow has seen its passengers’ numbers fall sharply over the pandemic and the recovery is slow.

Numbers are still over 70 percent below pre-Covid levels.

Heathrow Director of Surface Access, Tony Caccavone, said: “With passenger numbers still over 70 percent down on pre-pandemic figures, this charge, first proposed last year, will help us protect the business financially.”

Chair of independent Heathrow Area Transport Forum and Former London Deputy Mayor for Transport Val Shawcross said: “The pandemic continues to have a significant impact on Heathrow and this charge will help to prevent a car-led recovery and contribute towards new sustainable transport initiatives.
