City of London Corporation calls for mixed mode operations at Heathrow

2-Feb-2011 12:00 PM

UK's City of London Corporation has called for the introduction of mixed mode operations at London Heathrow International Airport (Reuters, 01-Feb-2011). The introduction of mixed mode at Heathrow – both runways being used for take-offs and landings – would reportedly permit an increase of aircraft movements to around 525,000 p/a, up from the current capped level of 480,000. This would result in an increase of around 10 million passengers.
