The first list showing the quietest and noisiest airlines at Heathrow puts BA short haul at the top and LOT at the bottom.
Heathrow's new £2.5 billion terminal will open in exactly one year's time, bosses at the UK's biggest airport announced.
Doors on both engines of the plane in last week's Heathrow emergency landing drama had been left unlatched during maintenance.
The Mayor's view is that any solutioninvolving the expansion of Heathrow is asking the Government to deliver theundeliverable.
He says that the airport is already responsible for vastly more noise pollution than any other airport in Europe and this would be made worse by adding a third, and inevitably a fourth runway.
This would be indefensible he claims, even before other serious questions involving air quality, vehicle pollution, rerouting the M25 and relocating local reservoirs were considered.
Speaking to business leaders at the CBI later, Mayor Boris Johnson will call the delay in solving the issue of aviation expansion ''unforgivable, baffling and ludicrous' and say:
- Heathrow expansion is politically toxic andundeliverable
- A new hub airport is the right solution for UK competitiveness
- The UK needs a vision for growth in both Westand East London
Boris Johnson blames 'too much pussyfooting around' for the delay in increasing London's airport capacity - and that a third runway at Heathrow is impossible.
Around 100,000 jobs will be lost around Heathrow if a rival airport - dubbed Boris Island - is built in the Thames Estuary. That's the claim of a new campaign group launched to back the airport. They hope local residents and businesses will rally to protect Heathrow's future as Mike Pearse reports.
– Rob Gray, new Campaign Director for the Back Heathrow campaign
For too long, the local residents who support Heathrow have been the silent majority in the debate on the airport's future.
I am delighted to be joining a campaign to give a voice to the many thousands of local residents who back Heathrow and whose businesses and jobs depend on the future of the airport.
A group backing the expansion of Heathrow Airport claims more than 100,000 jobs would be lost if a new airport dubbed Boris Island was built to the east of the capital.
The Back Heathrow group say that more people living nearby support further growth, than are against it.
The body of a stowaway has been found in the landing gear of a plane at Heathrow Airport.
A man believed to be Turkish and in his 30s was discovered in the British Airways Airbus A320 that flew from Istanbul to Terminal 5 yesterday.
Police were called by airport staff shortly after 11am and are trying to confirm his identity and trace relatives.
The airline said it will hold talks with authorities in Istanbul and officers from Scotland Yard as they investigate how the man managed to access the plane.
A post-mortem examination was due to take place at Uxbridge mortuary.
Heathrow bosses are set to publish their proposals submitted to the Davies Commission on a possible third runway at the airport.
The Airport Commission, led by Sir Howard Davies and otherwise known as the Davies Commission, is tasked with considering the future of airport expansion in Britain.
The submission from Heathrow will be published later on this morning.
A report out today claims that replacing Heathrow with a new hub airport would leave passengers, taxpayers and business worse off. It says a third London airport runway is essential if capacity is to be increased.
The study will be presented as evidence to the Airports Commission and argues against a new airport in the Thames Estuary, Isle of Grain or Stansted.
Earlier we spoke to John Holland-Kay, development Director at Heathrow.
Heathrow chief executive Colin Matthews said today:
"Britain already has one of the world's most successful international hub airports in Heathrow.
"Expanding Heathrow will put Britain ahead in the global race, connecting UK business to growth more quickly and at less cost to the taxpayer than any other option for new capacity.
"Heathrow is better located for passengers, business and jobs. Why build from scratch at a new hub when we can build on the strength that already exists around Heathrow today?"
