The Gallery | Heathrow in 2030

Images have been released of what Heathrow airport could look like at the end of next decade.

Sir Howard Davies’ Airports Commission today recommended that Heathrow be allowed to build a third runway to deal with the air capacity crisis in the South East.

The airport – which still requires the official go-ahead from ministers to expand – said it had allowed five years for the planning process then five years for the £17.6bn construction project.

The third runway could be operational by 2026.

Other improvements are due to take place at the West London airport next decade, including on the central terminal area.
