London’s Heathrow Airport has been named ‘Best Airport, over 25 million passengers’ at the Airports Council International Europe 2015 awards, held in Prazgue, Czech Republic from June 24-26. 

According to the airport, the accolade acknowledges the dedication of Heathrow’s frontline staff in giving passengers excellent service, and the transformation of the airport following the completion of an £11bn (US$17.2bn) investment program.

The airport was also awarded the Eco-Innovation Award in recognition of its commitment to environmental responsibility – the airport has reduced its air pollution by 16% over the past five years through a range of measures including the world’s largest single site car-share scheme.

John Holland-Kaye, chief executive at Heathrow Airport, said, “I am immensely proud to receive these awards on behalf of all the people who work every day to make Heathrow better for its passengers.

“Heathrow plays a hugely important role both as the front door to the UK and also by connecting British people, exporters and exports to markets across the globe. Our efforts to make this one of the best airports in the world have been recognised and we now need permission to expand Heathrow to take our country even further.”
