The major international airport Heathrow’s history dates back to the year 1930 as an aircraft testing base. This started when a British aero engineer and aircraft builder Richard Fairey bought a 150-acre land for £15,000. Fairey used this plot to build a base for testing and assembling aircraft. This private airport was then named Fairey’s Great West Aerodrome.
During World War II, this land was requisitioned by the government. They used it to build an RAF Heston, a different kind of base for troop-carrying aircraft. This base was no longer needed by the end of the war and the ownership was handed over to the Air Ministry as London’s civil airport in 1946.
The first aeroplane to take off from Heathrow was a Lancaster bomber called Starlight. In 1966, the airport’s name changed from London Airport to Heathrow Airport. Heathrow Airport has gone through a lot of changes over the years in its services, operations, and the number of passengers travelling through the airport.
By the year 2006, Heathrow Airport had handled around billion passengers on over 14 million flights. The terminals and central area buildings, along with control tower and multi-faith prayer rooms were designed by British architect Frederick Gibberd. In 2008, Terminal 5 was officially opened and inaugurated by Her Majesty The Queen in March.
In 2014, Terminal 2 was opened for business. In the same year, United Airlines moved in, while in 2015, Terminal 1 was closed. Heathrow Airport celebrated its 70th anniversary in the year 2016.
