The most important global and international transport networks are airplanes and airports.

London Heathrow Airport
Heathrow is the busiest and busiest airport in London, Britain, and the whole of Europe. For this reason, London Heathrow Airport is considered the most famous international airport in the city.

The airport has 80 fully operational airlines and flies to more than 185 international destinations across 84 countries. New York, meanwhile, is the busiest and busiest flight at the airport. The most interesting thing is that many of the tickets to the airport are purchased by Iranians.

We will continue to explore the characteristics of this London airport together.

The facilities of the airport are very extensive and are categorized in a variety of categories, from financial services, ATM kiosks at all terminals, airport areas, and currency exchange offices to a variety of restaurants, fast food, and coffee shops large and small that offer delicious food and drinks.
The interesting thing about Heathrow Airport’s shopping centres and department stores is that in many cases travellers prefer to shop there rather than go to other parts of the city.
Services such as special facilities for disabled people, seats for disabled people, text phones for the deaf, distinctive parking for the disabled, and high-tech wheelchairs are also available at the airport, which have further increased the reputation and popularity of London Heathrow Airport.
Having other facilities such as art galleries, high-tech bathrooms and private bathrooms that are the number one in terms of hygiene and even efficient pharmacies make this airport different from many international airports so that it ranks sixth in international airports.
