Heathrow airport has reported a record number of passengers for the month of September.
The UK’s largest airport increased traffic by 0.3 per cent compared to the same period last year, with 6.58 million passengers passing through the airport last month.
The monthly statistics also showed an increase in seats per aircraft from 0.4 per cent to 204.8 while load factors increased 1.1 per cent to 81 per cent. Passengers per aircraft rose 1.5 per cent to 165.9.
Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye, said: “September saw growing support from MPs and local residents for expansion at Heathrow as the best solution to the UK’s hub capacity crisis.
“Heathrow handles a quarter of all British exports by value, but is full. More and more people are asking how can we double Britain's exports if we don't expand Heathrow.”
