London Heathrow accommodated 35.7 million passengers in the first six months of 2016, marking a year-on-year rise of 0.6%.
The result helped revenue increase 1.0% to £1,320 million, while adjusted EBITDA was up 4.4% to £781 million, reflecting lower costs and better value, the airport operator said in a statement.
John Holland-Kaye, CEO of Heathrow, commented: “Heathrow has been named the best major airport in Europe for the third time and I am very proud of the work our colleagues do every day while giving better value to passengers.
“As the UK’s biggest port, we are supporting businesses from every corner of Britain to get their products to global markets, with cargo volumes up by almost 2%.
“Now Britain needs a positive post-Brexit plan and only Heathrow expansion will help Britain to be one of the world’s leading trading nations – connecting all of Britain to global growth. Heathrow has a new plan for expansion, allowing the Prime Minister to make the right choice in the national interest.”
