Passenger traffic would plunge by 90%: UK's Heathrow Airport

Agency News

Heathrow Airport,the busiest in Europe, forecast that passenger demand would plunge by over 90 percent in April, as coronavirus restrictions stop most people from travelling.

Heathrow said that its passenger numbers were down 52 percent in March compared with the same period last year, with many of those journeys being made by Britons returning home from abroad.

The airport, which is owned by a group of investors including Spain's Ferrovial, the Qatar Investment Authority and China Investment Corp, said it was now only using one of its two runways, as flights continue for cargo.
