Description

Love it or loathe it, Heathrow is the United Kingdom's largest and most important airport by a distance. It currently serves over 190 routes to more than 80 countries. Over �100 billion of imports and exports are handled every year, making it the UK's primary port by value.

This fascinating book traces the often controversial development of the airport over the last 70 years from the most humble of beginnings. Thanks to the author's in-depth knowledge the arguments for and against the building of a third runway are thoroughly and objectively described. There have been, and indeed still are, those who advocate building a brand new hub airport for London but it is a fact that Heathrow has long been the cornerstone of the local economy, providing jobs for over 70,000 staff.

This entertaining, controversial and superbly illustrated book is about much more than the bitter third runway battle. It contains many amusing anecdotes and a wealth of statistics that serve to make Heathrow such a key part of the country's infrastructure.
