The head of British Airways' parent company, Willie Walsh, has warned that Heathrow will soon be overtaken by Dubai as the world's biggest international airport.
Speaking to the House of Commons Transport Committee, Mr Walsh said that the Middle Eastern airport had grown massively over the last decade - and could outstrip Heathrow "within two to three years".
In 2001, Dubai was the 99th biggest international airport in the world. By 2001 it was in 13th position and by 2011 it was fourth, he said.
