Heathrow leaps ahead

HEATHROW has recorded it best month for three years and the third busiest on record rather showing up its continental rivals who are still for the most part struggling.  Numbers actually rose in July compared with the same month last year and whilst an increase of a fraction under 1% would be considered poor under normal circumstances BAA says it is an indication that traffic is stabilising.  Delivery or more Airbus A380 aircraft is helping the figures with the airlines keen to fill these particular planes and passengers also eager to try the new super Jumbo. www.baa.com
