London Heathrow Airport statement on EU referendum result

A Heathrow spokesperson said:

With today’s result, the case for expansion at Heathrow is stronger than ever before. Only Heathrow can help Britain be the great trading nation connecting all regions of the UK to the world. It is the keystone that connects businesses of every size to markets across the world as the UK’s only global hub airport.


Global connections are critical for a new outward-looking UK to help our businesses and economy to thrive – and with expansion we can deliver up to 40 new destinations on top of the 83 we serve now.


We are confident that the Government will make the right choice for the future of the UK, putting the interests of the country first.


We look forward to working with the Government and its agencies on next steps.


Information for passengers: 

Heathrow continues to focus on serving passengers and proudly being the UK’s front door.


Anyone travelling through the airport will find it operating normally with no changes to security and immigration.
