Heathrow Airport has identified the busiest single day for Terminal 5 since before the COVID pandemic.

More than 94,000 passengers travelled through the terminal on 26 February, during last month’s half-term holiday.

In total, 5.2 million people travelled through the airport in February.

Heathrow said departure punctuality was the most consistent it has been in the last 12 months and over 98% of passengers were through security in under 10 minutes for the second month in a row.

Overall passenger satisfaction is close to pre-pandemic levels.

CEO John Holland-Kaye said: “The February half term went very smoothly, thanks to a great plan and teamwork across the airport. 

“This should give everyone confidence that we are prepared for a successful Easter getaway.”
