Heathrow: Britain’s Busiest Airport flies through the doors of the famous transport hub for nine brand new episodes to provide a vivid insight into the people who work there and travel through it.
The global pandemic has seen the airport fighting back in an attempt to keep Britain’s biggest front door open. With Covid still a major factor in travel to and from the UK, Britain’s busiest airport is adjusting to life as restrictions are relaxed while adhering to protocols strict enough to prevent the spread of disease as it continues to welcome passengers from every continent.
With the global aviation industry struggling in the pandemic, this programme meets the individuals who keep the airport running and the characters who lift the spirits of passengers and staff.
Dame Julie Walters narrates as cameras go behind the check-in desks and walk the centre line of the runway, to reveal what it’s really like to keep planes flying in and out of Britain’s busiest airport.
