Heathrow airport is one of London’s most valuable economic assets. The airport is the busiest in Europe in terms of passenger traffic and third globally in 2014. Its yearly handling of 73 million passengers was greater than the entire population of the UK.
Located to the south west of London, it is owned by a consortium of investors, including the Government of Singapore and the China Investment Corporation.
Spaceknow Analytics can be used to track and compete activity at Heathrow’s various terminals – analysing volume of plane traffic and other variables to evaluate the revenue and passenger turnover of various airline groups.
Analysis of activity at airports is particularly useful in the case of Heathrow, as its terminals are divided by grouping of airline alliances. The airport is served by two runways, with 4 of 5 terminals currently in operation.
