HC Deb 02 December 1969 vol 792 cc280-1W
Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the maximum number of daily aircraft movements achieved by London Heathrow Airport; and how this compares with major United States airports, from information available to him from international sources.

Mr. Goronwy Roberts

At Heathrow, 927. On information available to me, maximum daily rates were 2,486 at O'Hare Airport, Chicago, 2,049 at Los Angeles International and 1,463 at J. F. Kennedy Airport, New York; these figures relate to dates in 1968 and may subsequently have been exceeded.
