London Heathrow Airport History

Heathrow Airport was originally known as Great West Aerodrome, a small airfield built in 1929.

The development of this small airfield into the Heathrow we know today began in 1944, with the aim of using the airfield for long-distance military aircraft during World War II. However, by the time the airport was almost complete, the war had ended, and the airport continued to develop as a civil airport.

Today, Heathrow Airport has over 90 airlines flying to 170 destinations across the globe, and is the busiest airport in the United Kingdom.
