London Heathrow: a little history

 

Heathrow’s history dates back to 1929. The British government had acquired some 688 hectares of farmland on the outskirts of London for an airport. In 1944, during the Second World War, the site was officially designated as a civil airport. However, civilian flights began operating from the site as early as the 1930s. After the war, Heathrow was considerably enlarged and modernized to meet the growing demand for air travel.

The real turning point for Heathrow came in 1955 with the opening of Terminal 2. This marked the beginning of an era of rapid development. Over the years, new terminals were added to meet the growing demand for air travel. In 1961, terminal 3 was inaugurated, followed by terminal 4 in 1986 and terminal 5 in 2008. The latter is now one of the world’s largest airport terminals.

London Heathrow has also been the scene of many historic moments in aviation. In 1952, the first concrete runway was built. This was a major breakthrough in airport construction. In 1976, the airport was the site of a notorious plane hijacking by Palestinian and German militants. And in 2012, Heathrow was the center of the London Olympics. This event welcomed thousands of visitors from all over the world.

Today, London Heathrow is a global hub for travel, business and commerce. The airport makes a significant contribution to the UK economy and serves as an essential gateway between the UK and the rest of the world. With its world-class infrastructure, quality services and commitment to innovation and sustainability, Heathrow remains at the forefront of international aviation. The airport has preserved a rich and diverse heritage that testifies to its historical importance.
