London Heathrow Airport marked its busiest ever start to a year after it served more than 5.5 million passengers in January 2016, a 1% increase over the same period in 2015.

There was strong passenger growth from emerging markets including Mexico, China and Turkey, which grew 21%, 16% and 5% respectively.

John Holland-Kaye, CEO for London Heathrow, said, “With record passenger numbers and strong cargo volumes – it’s been a great start to 2016 for London Heathrow. With expansion, we’ll open up 40 new trading links, which will carry more British exports to the fastest growing markets in the world.

“We’ll help the government rebalance our economy and build a better Britain. The Prime Minister can say yes and we will deliver.”
