Britain exporting at unprecedented pace as Heathrow Cargo sees record April growth

British exports through Heathrow are growing – the volume of cargo flying from the airport was up an impressive 12% in April and grew 27% to Latin America and 19% to South Asia, growing at least twice as fast as volumes to Europe (+11%). North America remains Britain’s most important export market from Heathrow, recording healthy 14% growth in cargo in April.

In readiness for further growth as businesses respond to Brexit andprepare for an expanded Heathrow, communities across Britain are putting forward their ideas to host one of Heathrow’s four new logistics hubs. These hubs will play a vital role in making Heathrow’s expansion programme more affordable and environmentally sustainable, as well as creating jobs across the country as the airport looks to increase off-site construction.
