Heathrow Airport, London

We will find for you the most attractive offers for air travels

London Heathrow is the major international airport in the United Kingdom and one of the busiest airports in the world. It is located in the most western part of London — Borough of Hillingdon. The modern territory of Heathrow airport served as a military airfield during World War II, where aviation equipment test runs took place. After World War II, Heathrow became a civil airport under the Ministry of Civil Aviation. The first civil flight was made to Buenos Aires on January 1, 1946. Civil aviation had been developing in the postwar period, and so had Heathrow. New runways, passenger and freight terminals able to accept modern line aircrafts were built. The most famous among them are double-deck Boeing 747 and supersonic Concorde. Nowadays, Heathrow connects the capital of Great Britain with more than 150 airports around the world. The airport is a base post and hub for British Airways and Virgin Atlantic.
