Heathrow celebrates busiest ever day
Heathrow celebrated its busiest ever departures day on Friday (24 July 2015), welcoming over 130,000 passengers!
While the final total is still being finalised, over 130,624 departing passengers is the provisional total – which breaks the previous record of 129,059 from 12 May this year.
Signficantly, Terminal 5 broke its all time record to register a staggering total of over 57,500 passengers!
Extra services in terminal for passengers
Heathrow has put in place a number of extra services in place to help passengers – including the over 500,000 we’ve seen in the last four days.
Normand Boivin, Chief Operating Officer at Heathrow commented: “We’re dedicated to continuously training our staff and investing in skills so that they can always provide the best passenger service. This is a commitment that has seen passengers recognise Heathrow as Western Europe’s best airport.”
“However, we don’t want to rest on our laurels. We always want to encourage our staff to go further, to be creative and think of the unexpected things that could surprise and delight passengers.”
“During the summer holidays, when millions of families fly away on their holidays, it’s the little things that can help make an airport journey more fun and relaxing for both parents and children. Whether that’s free restaurant meals for kids in Heathrow’s restaurants or simply acknowledging that a child has an imaginary friend who they believe is as real as you or me – at Heathrow we have an ambition to become the friendliest family airport and to give all our passengers the best airport service in the world.”
