About LHR Airport

The main airport that serves the London metropolitan area in England is London Heathrow Airport. The three-letter identifier for the airport is LHR. The airport is twelve miles west of the city.

Heathrow stands as the busiest airport in both London and the United Kingdom at large. It is also the third-busiest airport on the globe and has more international passengers flying through it than any other airport on earth. Heathrow has four terminals to service passengers, although Terminal 2 is in the process of being rebuilt to bring the number to five. The runways at Heathrow are oriented on an east-west axis, which frequently puts approaching planes over the city of London.

Heathrow began its history as the Great West Aerodrome in 1929. In 1944, during World War II, development of the airfield began in earnest. The British government hoped to use the field for long hauls to the Pacific theater of the war. The war was over when the project was completed. The British government then changed the purpose of Heathrow to civilian service. The name of the airport comes from a small hamlet that was named Heath Row and was comprised of farms and orchards.

From these rather meager beginnings, Heathrow has grown into one of the world's largest airports. Over 90 airlines operate out of Heathrow and the port serves as the main hub for British Airways and a major hub for Virgin Atlantic. Nearly 70 million passengers passed through Heathrow in 2011. There are only two runways that run at nearly full capacity, so there is little room for more flights. Larger planes provide a possibility that more passengers could go through Heathrow without more flights. There has also been recent talk of adding a third runway that would allow for more passengers. There has also been discussion of using the same runway for landings and take-offs.
