To put things in perspective: LHR grew a mediocre 1.5% last year, mainly thanks to larger planes used by airlines. London’s competitors are showing much larger increases. AMS reported a 2014 growth of 4.6% and a number of new airlines to operate flight to/from AMS forcasted for 2015 and an increased use by carriers such Easyjet.
It is time LHR and the government get their acts together and fast. The competition won’t wait!
