(Heathrow Airport to get £3bn makeover)

Heathrow Airport has announced £3bn worth of private-sector investment in UK infrastructure.

The investment is part of Heathrow airport’s business plan for ‘Q6’, the regulatory period between 2014 and 2019. Since 2003, Heathrow has invested £11bn in the airport, one of the UK’s largest private sector tenders.

The renovation has improved customer feedback, with the airport moving from the bottom to the top quartile of EU airports for passenger satisfaction. In 2012 Terminal Five was voted the world’s best airport terminal.

The plans for Q6 include:

• Adding a new Terminal Two that will open in 2014
• Making journeys smoother with increased number of self-check-in kiosks, and new self-service bag drops
• Improving efficiency by delivering £248m of savings
• Supplying better surface access by extending its personal transport ‘pods’ to link Terminals Two and Three with business car parks.
• Reducing pollution by increasing of pre-conditioned air on planes, allowing them to switch off their engines while on the ground. The airport will also introduce more airside electric vehicles.
