Heathrow planning '£3 billion of investment'

The charges, which need to be approved by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), will help pay for the £3 billion of investment that Heathrow is planning. This includes:

  • The opening of the new Terminal 2 next year, improved check-in and baggage facilities and more customer service training for staff.
  • Flight punctuality at Heathrow - the number of planes taking off or landing within 15 minutes of schedule - was only around 67% in 2007. It has now gone up to 80% and Heathrow wants this figure to increase to 90% by the end of the decade.
