Heathrow plans to double cargo capacity

5/15/2014 9:27:41 AM

Heathrow has announced an updated plan to expand the airport, including doubling cargo capacity to improve UK export competitiveness.


Heathrow already moves 65 percent of the UK’s 400 billion pound (US$673.4 billion) freight exports.


The plan is meant to create more than 100,000 new jobs and at least 100 billion pounds (US$168.3 billion) of UK economic benefits.


Heathrow’s revised expansion plans will be submitted Wednesday to the Airports Commission.


“Expansion at Heathrow matters to the whole country. Only Heathrow will connect all of the UK to fast-growing international markets. The plans we are submitting to the Airports Commission demonstrate major economic benefits from a third runway for the whole of the UK,” John Holland-Kaye, development director and chief executive designate of Heathrow, said.
