Historija

Historija Heathrowa počela je 1930. kad je avio - inženjer i graditelj aviona Richard Fairey, kupio teren u tadašnjem selu Heath Row i otvorio mali aerodrom za svoje potrebe.

Za Drugog svjetskog rata Britanska vlada Britanska vlada eksproprirala je Faireyev aerodrom uz velike količine zemlje uokolo za izgradnju RAF-ovog aerodroma Heston - 1944. Kad je završio rat RAF je 1. januara 1946. predao aerodrom Ministarstvu civilnog transporta da ga koristi kao civilni.

Već prve godine preko Heathrowa je letjelo 63,000 putnika, a 1951. 796,000, tad je odlučeno da se angažira arhitekt Frederick Gibberd na proširenju aerodroma, koji je odtad gotovo svake dekade udvostručio svoju površinu.

Don't waste your money on pricey + shitty airport food. Go straight for the Boots Meal Deal. £3.79 for sandwich, chips and drink. I lived off this steal for 6 months. Just don't get the prawns.
