GREENLINE - London Heathrow Airport

London Heathrow Airport

London Heathrow Airport content image1In 1930, British aero engineer and aircraft builder, Richard Fairey, paid the Vicar of Harmondsworth £15,000 for a 150-acre plot to build a private airport to assemble and test aircraft. Complete with a single grass runway and a handful of hastily erected buildings, Fairey’s Great West Aerodrome was the humble precursor to the world’s busiest international airport, Heathrow.

Today London Heathrow Airport is the world’s busiest international airport and the hub of the civil aviation world. Over 67 million passengers travel through the airport annually on services offered by 90 airlines travelling to over 180 destinations in over 90 countries.

Green Line 724 offers convenient links to the airport.  All services stop at the Central Bus Station, just a short walk to Terminals 1,2 and 3.
