London's Heathrow Airport is the busiest international airport in the world, and has been for decades. Since it s opening in 1946 the world s airlines have beaten a path to its door and seventy years of operation has aroused feelings of appreciation from those who love it and feelings of derision from those who don't. Heathrow has seen the brightness of magnificent beginnings, the dark days of theft and delays, the dramas, the mundane everyday routine and probably everything in between. It has seen the arrival and departure of royalty, the rich, the famous and almost countless millions of ordinary passengers simply wanting to go somewhere or to get home safely; those who are the fuel that drive it. Now, as the airport reaches its 70th birthday, its position as the world s premier International hub are under the microscope as airports in Europe seek to attract traffic away from the UK. This book charts the history of the airport through the photographs of those who worked there, who still work there, those who use it, and those who are just enthusiastic about it.
This fascinating book traces the often controversial development of the airport over the last 70 years from the most humble of beginnings.

Love it or loathe it, Heathrow is the United Kingdom's largest and most important airport by a distance. It currently serves over 190 routes to more than 80 countries. Over £100 billion of imports and exports are handled every year, making it the UK's primary port by value. This fascinating book traces the often controversial development of the airport over the last 70 years from the most humble of beginnings. Thanks to the author's in-depth knowledge the arguments for and against the building of a third runway are thoroughly and objectively described. There have been, and indeed still are, those who advocate building a brand new hub airport for London but it is a fact that Heathrow has long been the cornerstone of the local economy, providing jobs for over 70,000 staff. This entertaining, controversial and superbly illustrated book is about much more than the bitter third runway battle. It contains many amusing anecdotes and a wealth of statistics that serve to make Heathrow such a key part of the country's infrastructure.

BAA Limited owns and operates seven UK airports: Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Southampton, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. They handle nearly 150 million passengers a year, and are a vital part of the country's transport infrastructure. In the light of the Office of Fair Trading's referral of BAA to the Competition Commission, to investigate whether BAA's market position was limiting competition in the UK aviation sector, the Committee set up its own inquiry. It particularly wanted to consider: the regulatory framework; the quality of service provided; the size and quality of investment; any consequences following the acquisition of BAA by Ferrovial; the implications of further runway and terminal capacity; how more competition could be introduced into the market. The Committee concludes that the drawbacks of common ownership outweigh the advantages, and identifies a problem with service quality. It believes that increased competition is possible, and hopes the Competition Commission will ensure a healthy, competitive airport sector for the future.

While there are a multitude of publications on corporate finance and financial management, only a few address the complexity of air transport industry finance and scant attention has been given to airport financial management. This book deals exclusively with airport issues to rectify this. It does this with an analysis of the theoretical concepts relevant to the subject area combined with a detailed investigation of current practice within the industry. Airport Finance and Investment in the Global Economy bridges the gap between much academic research on airports published in recent years – lacking much managerial relevance – and real-world airport financial management. This is achieved by featuring expert analysis of contemporary issues specific to airport finance and funding strategies, illustrated by worked examples from a wide range of different countries to enhance understanding and create a global perspective. The book is designed to appeal to both practitioners and academics. Airport-specific topics include: performance measurement and benchmarking, valuation, tools for financial control and management, alternatives of financing, privatisation, competition and implications of economic regulation.

This White Paper sets out a strategic policy framework for the development of airport capacity in the UK over the next 30 years. Chapters focus on the following: the strategic framework; the environmental impacts; the air transport sector. It also looks at individual regions and the impact for them, including: Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, also the North of England, the Midlands, the South West and finally the South East. The framework itself can be used by public bodies, air operators and airlines for future planning applications. It also sets out the Government and devolved administrations' conclusions on the case for future airport expansion, taking into account the large consultation exercise of over half million respondents. This paper provides reasons why airport capacity should be expanded, but recommends a balanced approach to the issue. Among the reasons are: the economic importance of air travel for the country’s economy and the increased desire amongst the population for foreign travel, which should be balanced against minimizing, where possible the environmental effects to an area where airports are situated. These are some of the main cases for future development following a full environmental assessment: for Scotland: an additional runway at Edinburgh Airport; substantial terminal development at Glasgow Airport. For Wales: further terminal development needed at Cardiff airport. For Northern Ireland: development of increased capacity at Belfast. For the North of England: additional terminal capacity provided at Manchester Airport and development of increased capacity at Liverpool John Lennon Airport. For the Midlands: additional runway for Birmingham. For South West England: expansion of Bristol Airport. For South East England: a new runway at Stansted; further development of Heathrow supported, including a further runway and additional terminal capacity. Some options though are not to be followed through, including: two new runways at Gatwick, a development of a second runway at Luton, and a new airport at Cliffe, a new airport of central Scotland, and a new airport at Rugby.
