Passengers at Heathrow will now have to pay increased charges of more than 50 per cent.

Passengers at Heathrow will now have to pay increased charges of more than 50 per cent from January 1.

The price will rise from £19.60 to £30.19 at the major airport.

This comes after the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approved it to “reflect the uncertainty of the recovery of passenger volumes from the pandemic as Heathrow made a loss of £3.4 billion since the start of the pandemic.”

Although the charges are paid for by the airlines, they are usually covered in passengers’ airfares.

A spokesperson for Heathrow has said the cap range of £32 to £43 has left them “extremely disappointed.”


They also said it “relies on rushed analysis and will undermine passenger experience” at the airport.

If left “uncorrected, this risks leaving Heathrow without sufficient cash flow to support investment in improving passenger service and resilience,” they added.

The cap will increase or decrease depending on passenger numbers and commercial revenue.
