Heathrow Airport to announce new investment plans

UK's Heathrow Airport will reportedly invest GBP3 billion in developing infrastructure with the airport to announce its modernisation plans on 10-Feb-2013 (shropshirestar.com/itv.com/london24.com, 10-Feb-2013). The plan will cover the period between 2014 and 2019 and follows a GBP5 billion investment plan between 2008 and 2013. Alongside the development plans, Heathrow will also reveal a major increase to airline charges. The reason for the increase in the charges is because fewer passengers have travelled through the airport than originally predicted.
